Grade 5


Build them a Home


The meaning of home

Where we all roam

But not having one

How may you have fun?

That is very sad

This makes me mad!

Some people’s lives are grey

It must not stay this way

I have a room

But others, gloom

I have a bed

But others, dread

A lot of people are wealthy

But more, unhealthy

I have a roof

Others none, and that’s no spoof

In my room, I have an air vent

But all some people have is a tent

I have other things beyond compare

But other people just have despair

Home is a place to play, sleep and eat

Home is a place to talk to family

Home is a place to have nice meals

Others just don’t know how it feels

So go ahead

and build these people a homestead.
