This is not that home

We were told
“Go back where you had come from,
Go home.”
When we returned 
We found we had the right address
But the wrong home.
They were already there,
Saying it was as much their home
As anyone else’s 
And because, you know, their home 
Therefore, you see, their rules.
If any of us dared to object,
They said,
We could go elsewhere
Seeking refuge.
