Loss

 

A little cottage home
with a white picket fence
was a pretty penny then
a few pounds and pence
 
The rich strut their mansions
the poor squat in huts
the rich prance their poodles
the poor run their mutts
 
Been around the world
been both rich and poor
confused about many things
but of this I am sure
 
won and lost a lot in life
but naught can recompense
that little cottage home
with a white picket fence
 
*
 
Beware the royal roads
that promise gaudy Rome
hold instead to bounty of
your little hearth and home
