A Man Comes Home III

A man comes home. A man comes home to a burning house. A neighbor calls the fire brigade. A fireman comes home to a burning house. Everyone works from home nowadays. A fireman starts a fire. Billy Joel didn’t start the fire. A man is the piano. A man hurts the ones he loves. A man keeps love at arm’s length. A man doesn’t love himself. A man wasn’t loved by his mother. A man’s mother wasn’t the apple of her father’s eye. Tim Cook cooks apples. The apple cobbler’s children have no crust. Bruce Springsteen comes home on fire.
