The Dry Gray Place
by Jason Tomlinson

The dry gray place is home but is that where you belong?
in this land over the rainbow you’ve learned a different song
influenced by the wonderful colors of the wondrous landscape sights
the beauty of it all is perfectly evident a 1001 delights
and yet the familiarity of home continually beckons
old dry gray home is offering you seconds
but is home best is home really it
is home really what you want or are you trying to get
something that you already possess
you may want to pause for a second guess
there’s no place like home that’s true to the letter
but a place not like home in the end could be better
