I wonder if home is a place, a concept, or just an impossible dream.
When I was young I lived in a house with a harassed, constantly nagging mother, a domineering father, and three older brothers who thought that inflicting pain on me was their right.
When I left school I fled that vile place and lived alone in semi-squalor for almost a decade before meeting the most beautiful girl in the world, marrying her, and moving into an only slightly awful apartment near the iron foundry.
Time passed, and I found I was living with a harassed, constantly nagging wife and three children who thought that their collective function was to inflict misery on me, all four of them spending money faster than I could earn it, no matter the hours I worked.
So I fled that vile place and lived on the streets for several years, begging and thieving, until my luck ran out – ha! – and I was arrested.
Now I look round the little cell that I share with a harassed, constantly nagging psychopath and I think to myself ‘I guess this is home.’
