A Trendy Town By The Sea

A very nice place to visit for a day
But accomodation is dear there for an overnight stay
What is known as a trendy sea side town
But not for one who is financially down
The poorer sort of people you will never see there
From their poor streets too poor for to travel to elsewhere
You never will see them sunning on beaches by the sea
Or in a cafe with cake enjoying coffee or tea
So many seem to lose out in the social divide
As the gap between the haves and the have nots keeps growing ever wide
The most of the World's material wealth is owned by too few
You may say to that tell us something that's new
The trendy town by the sea is not for life's downtrod
The poor hungry souls forsaken by God.
