Hard Lessons

The chateau cast a shadow 
Across every thing on the block
Starkly contrasting 
Our own hovel of tin and tree-bark

Mt. Olympus, rose above us
Gods amongst us mere mortals
Ironic how easy a job
To look down towards you nose to,

The forlorn, the scorned
Misfortunate and distressed
Hard lesson the oppressed
Must swallow and accept
