LIFESTYLES

by:
Clay Harrison

There are some who want for nothing
For all their dreams come true.
They are the rich and famous
Unknown to me and you.

They've seen the wonders of this world
From jets and limousines.
Their faces grace the pages
Of popular magazines.

They're known the whole world over
And dine with kings and queens
On caviar and vintage wines
Beside their pampered greens.

There are some who possess nothing
Of value in this life.
They dream of a much kinder world
That's free from pain and strife.

Their dreams are often shattered
And no one seems to care
Too many bills, too little pay,
Is a burden hard to bear.

These poor and unknown people
Do work that must be done
To afford the rich and famous
Their moment in the sun.
