Rich and Poor
What can we say to introduce the rich names,
they just care about their own fames.
But what about the poor ones,
who can't think of having fun.
When the rich are being entertained in the biggest of land,
they can't enjoy the scent of simple sand.
They take pleasure in the ocean,
when their mind doesn't have the simple definition of motion.
The poor learn to labour and to wait,
but to learn for a rich is only inside the school's gate.
To study rich have no pain,
after study poor have no gain.
The poor will live as slavers,
better than asking the rich any favors.
Rich have brothers, sisters husbands or wives,
but poor beg for their lives.
But what after this long debate,
the result is only what was already said,
Rich goes on richer,
Poor goes on poorer.
That life circle cannot be made feeble,
because it's made by us flawed people.
