MIDDLE CLASS [2]


MIDDLE CLASS
The class that is sandwiched from the two sides
The class that is not entirely in the bottom neither in the top
The class that dreams to be called upper class some day
The class that dreads to be in the bottom as it had unpleasant experience at the bottom

The class that is squeezed from all sides and gets no sympathy from any other class
The class that is the engine of growth of the nation
The economy of the nation is defined by this class
The class that gives hope of a better tomorrow

The class that that many love to belong but only few ever move higher to the next class
The class that is a darling of the political class
The class that is envied by the lower class but oppressed by the upper class
The class that gets smaller by the day for a worsening economy
We love thee middle class, please do not shrink and do not go away

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
