No Place Compares to Home

Sidney’s Opera House is exquisite,
A truly great place to visit
The Louvre has many masterpieces
But none so beautiful as my nieces

The food sellers of Turkish streets
With all their scrumptious tasting sweets
Have nothing on mom’s home cooking
A point I cannot overlook

London’s impressive Big Ben
Cannot keep time near so well
As the unheard dinner bell
Of the pooch sleeping in my den

India during its Pujas
Cannot compare to my grand poo-bah
Relaxing in his reclining chair
These are the things about which I care
