You see them come, You see them go;
the rich who think they want to know
just how it is the poor folk live
and what wisdom they can gain or give.
But are you poor when you always know
that back to your world you can go?
A simple phone call and you’re free
is not a path the poor can see.
Dad’s not there with cash to pay
and set you back along your way.
To them, their future’s like their past;
Their life is here – the die is cast.
But back to their world the rich will go
for they’ve gained ‘wisdom’, they now ‘know.’
But the rich can never know or see
from poverty you’re never free.
It eats away at heart and soul
and daily makes you feel less whole.
There’s one thing the rich will never know –
your poverty is their cash flow.
