Social Mobility

Life’s not an easy ride for most rich kids

They must fight their way up, with dirty tricks.

Sure, there are helping hands which bunk them up –

But if you start to fall, those hands uncup

And let you crack the pavement pretty hard.

From heights you never scaled, you’ll be regarded

As a dim-wit, an embarassment, or worse

The family-failure. It’s social status in reverse

Where the rich man’s head for heights not there

He has to fight for his life, and this life’s not fair.
