We're the invisible people

We are the ones out behind the scenes, Working everyday…, Those who should be famous for everything But got nothing fancy to say Our world is better than that of others, It’s almost like we’re not here Those who man the rudders, And keep their family’s dear We’re the 2d characters, The extras from a movie To others just the narrators Designed to keep it moving Alive just to fill the bus The bustle in the street While the richest cringe, Looking down at us People who win always cheat We work long shifts When you see us, think feeble Crossing things off lists They don’t see us as equal Caught in the twists We’re the invisible people, We’re the invisible people

Avril, They may've been born under a different and lucky star, but tonight the stars have aligned in new choice. A poetic form draws me in to where you are, a new star, a new poet voice. -Richard

Aye, the noiseless population that go to work with the garbage trucks every morning, rain or shine! Aloha! Rico
