Glass Houses Poem by Marie Causey


Glass Houses with see through people
Transparent contents on show
Large houses with no central heating
Covered in cold winter snow

See through houses easily shatter
Glass house people are fat
So much food life don’t matter
Spending transparent cash to the latter

Transparency in life never gone
Selfish glass hearted people holding on
Life to them like broken glass
Showing off breeding and class

Glass houses oh they easily shatter
People inside them fatter and fatter
Easy life for the chosen few
Life on show in glass for all to view

    This poem.....Beautifully built to express the surroundings.....
    Glass houses showed all, but again to remind scattering of broken glass from house can hurt
    any one outside and inside so get ready for whole life to live with it.. :)
