"Poor Castle"

                                I am what I am said a man,
                                    as a kid he built castles in the sand...

                                Looking across the vast ocean blue,
                                    thinking to himself what will I do...
                                He thought eyes wide I have a plan,
                                     to build real castles once he was a man...

                                In a world so vast demanding as can be,
                                      to build these castles will cost a large fee...

                                Decades later he was right on course,
                                       skyscrapers mansions riding high on his horse...

                                His jet air pilot flies him coast to coast,
                                        sipping his champagne after proposing a toast...

                                They landed on an island in a poverty stricken land
                                         there were many people holding out there hand...

                                Not a single home could be seen,
                                         these people live in poverty water unclean...

                                The man shook his head and began to walk away,
                                          it's sad how many people live in disarray...

                                There are so many people who have nothing to eat,
                                        because the man with the castle up high in his seat...

                                                                                           Peter K
