    'No More Hiroshimas' by James Kirkup and 'Icarus Allsorts' by Roger McGough can appear, on a superficial level, to be completely different poems.

    On the surface, a "house" and a "home" are interchangeable words. They both describe a place where someone lives, but with a deeper analysis, we find that a house is simply the structure or the building. An actual home is much more complex. It is filled with objects and memories, which grow and change along with its residents. Home is a place we come back to after a long day's work, the place where we go to seek shelter and solace.
