There Is An Earthly Heaven And Hell

Can't say of an afterlife hell or heaven but there is an Earthly heaven and hell
Whilst many are homeless and hungry some for themselves doing well
And some are very wealthy and getting wealthier by the day
And a huge gap between the haves and have nots it has always been this way
That a minority own the majority of the wealth in the Human World does not seem fair at all
And though the billionaire just like the pauper to the Reaper's scythe does fall
And though the praises of egalatarianism some are happy to sing
Of equality amongst the living there is no such a thing
So many hungry and homelesss in the bigger World out there
And the poor and the forgotten are to be found everywhere
Life choices we hear so much of to everyone does not apply
And why so many are poor and homeless one has to wonder why
Could it be for some to grow wealthier many must know of poverty
There is nothing fair about that at least that's how it seems to me.
