It Does Seem A Sad Thing
It does seem a sad thing for to have to say
by Francis Duggan
That the gap between the poor and the wealthy is growing wider by the day
Not alone in poor Countries but in Lands Worldwide
There are millions at the wrong end of the social divide
In the twenty first century it does not seem right
That millions of children are sleeping rough tonight
Of a successful future for them little chance
The poor and sad victims of bad birth circumstance
Many of them with drug addicted parents serving time in jail
The poorest of the poor who are born to fail
In a world where millions live in dire poverty
It is wrong that a minority own the majority of the wealth would you not agree?
Many hungry and homeless children are sleeping rough tonight
In the twenty first century this does not seem right.
