Blondie and the Black Sheep

                          in memoriam  -
Marilyn Louise Perkins Crittenden, 1939 - 2015

lost in our own town
          no way home

where's the school
          can't stay home

where are my clothes
           won't be at home

mother left, father alone
           couldn't keep you home

brother said yes, lucky me
           but never your home

you couldn't, you wouldn't stay
           pain is no home

kindred spirits, you and me
           home wasn't home

outsiders, we anchored each other
           home without a home

solace knowing our non-existence
           defined our home

paths separated over the years
           each found a home

and now you've gone
