To Enjoy Luxury Gambling Is Fun?


the rich girl and her mother
often go to the casino to play
to enjoy luxury gambling is fun
chance to unwind enjoy together

the rich girl often wonders
if there is a gazillionaire
she could marry to make
this her oh so hard life easier

the poor girl gets up early
to work hard in rice fields
before sun rise her work starts
to work under hot sun all day

the poor girl thinks of city
where life is so much easier
to work as a maid when older
in a cool house good food pay

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
