Rich Man, Poor Man

Rich man, poor man

One in a Mercedes, the other in a van

One makes the news on the channel the other watches; c – span

One owns the company the other works in.

One is a sinner, the other suffers because of the sin.

Yet one goes to an empty house and the other goes to a happy home.

One listens to hollow greetings on his answering machine, the other tells bed time stories of Rome.

Take away their bank accounts and you will see,

They aren’t so different, they’re just like you and me.

Human beings living in this world

Unappreciative of the gift of life,

Whining only about our materialistic strife.

Rich Man, Poor Man, Beggar Man, Theif

We all fall to the ground eventually, like a discarded leaf.
