Btrying To Keep Up With The Joneses
From Plato to King Solomen,
And all of those who have been wise.
Elaborated, analyzing many subjects,
Common to all blankets of disguise.
Lessons passed down from our parents,
Mentors leading down all proven paths.
Living in fast lanes of prosperity,
Finishing first and never last.
Sometimes roads less traveled,
Bumpy, less comfort, so very long.
True happiness, success, and serenity,
Never found, 'Trying to keep up with the Jones'.
