”“What kind of house is this,” he said
“Where I have come to roam?”
“It’s not a house,” said Judas Priest
“It’s not a house . . . it’s a home””
(Bob Dylan in The Ballad of Frankie Lee and Judas Priest)
“Foot ball’s fate is to be hit by feet
Kicks from all sides the poor is to meet.
Each team carries it to the goal of opponent
This homeless has no place permanent.”

“There’s a place for everything,
There’s a place for everything
Where it ought to be:
For a chicken, the hen’s wing;
For poison, the bee’s sting;
For almond-blossom, Spring;
A beerhouse for me.”
(R. Graves in Strong beer)
