The Meaning of Home

It means somewhere to sleep.
Not a box on the street.
It means a place where it’s dry.
Not a bench under the sky.
It means a place where you can cuddle.
Not some place in a puddle.
It means a place near a lamplight.
Not a place near a street light.
It means a place with clean water.
Not some place with dirty water.
It means a place to listen to music.
Not on the street playing music.
So get off your butts and help.
And even if it’s just a nickel.
It might get someone out of a pickle.
