The World of the One Percent

The World of the One Percent

 

By Elton Camp



The super rich is who these folks are

More wealthy than old Croesus by far



They reside in the most fabulous estate

Privacy protected by a guarded gate



A mansion with elevators & indoor pool

Where as kings and queens they rule



Sparkling clean and always kept that way

By staff:  butler, maids, cooks and the valet



“The master is quite indisposed,” they say

To any who may attempt to visit that day



Breakfast in bed they can anytime enjoy

Where they is nothing around to annoy



Even doctors willingly pay them a house call

As do stylists, masseurs, barbers—one and all



Personal shoppers go out to buy their clothes

Unless a tailor comes—it’s sure one of those



For it is only poor folks, down on their luck

Who have go and shop at Sears & Roebuck



Since only the little people pay income tax

In carrying their fair load they are found lax



Certainly, no self indulgences do they spare

For the uncouth masses they have little care



Unless James brings around the limousine

It’s in a mere $200,000 car they are seen



A world of incredible privilege is theirs

Where they relax without having any cares
