Apples to Oranges

I was en route a new
When I made a pit stop
At the house that once
Used to be
Where a German shepherd
Who leapt at my sight
And two humans
About seven decades old
Who's blood I have
Running in my system
With unconditional positive regard
The house that I used to call 
Now inhabits strangers
And the streets I could map, blindfolded
Are slowly fading from my memory.
I never had a place to call my own
I am from a nomadic breed,
Kin to the Olivegreeners.
MH 53
Was the only home 
I knew
And He deprived me 
Of that too,
And even though I used to despise
This small little town
With small minded people
And small conservative ideas
Where I couldn't go out all by myself
After dark,
I now wish I could go back
And experience it all
Over again,
One last time
Just to appreciate it
Like I never did
