Home

Home

Home is a place for comfort

It’s a place for a warm dinner

People should have a home

And not need a box at night

Home’s a place for love

A place for forgiveness and generosity

For the homeless their only light is a shelter

Houses should be free for the homeless

Other people should be happy because they have a home

Not a box to sleep in at night

A house is a luxury not a right

Homeless people ask people for money

Just to even eat

So homeless don’t last long in the cold

And some not for long now
