Small Town Upper Class - Poem by Francis Duggan

The so called elite of this small town may feel like upper class
But for the very ordinary in a bigger town they would pass
They have their social gatherings where one must be invited to attend
If one sees you as an enemy to none you are a friend
One might call them a cliche or call them what you may
But they do feel so conceited in their self important way
At their weekend invitation only dinners the small town talk is rife
One must feel a bit sad for them for their narrow outlook on life
The upper class of this town is their one claim to renown
But when all is said and all is done 'tis a small country town
But the upper class in a small town in the city with the upper class could not socialize
But then everybody looks at life through very different eyes
Where-ever you live in big or small town you will have social rank
But for the fact of rank and class we have ignorance to thank.
