House To Home The Definitions Of Two Nouns

In a home, you look for a place to be,

a place to feel safe, a sight to see.

One eighth of the population is without a home

it’s more serious than it’s shown.

These four walls and a roof protect me from the rain

The joy of family keeps away any pain.

This house creates a place for home,

but some might need a good loan.

Most homes have a high price,

housing cheaper would be nice.

Houses would be nicer with less rent to pay,

but no one wants their housing to drift away.

That’s why some don’t pay their rent cheap

and have less nutritious meals to eat.
