Top Shelf

Listen closely

To yourself

Do you want change

Or something else?

It can’t stay the same

How can we all

share the wealth?

We all want to be comfy-cozy

*

Fine if you worked all day

or if you are on a break

Some things we earn

Make no mistake

But all those other things

We don’t have to take?

**

No more gloating

About what sells

We need change

To something else

It can’t stay the same

How can we share more health?

Many won’t make it

Just by coasting

*

Fine if we are getting paid

Or if we have it made

Some things we earn

Make no mistake

But all those extra things

We just can’t forsake?

**

I’m always posing

Whether I want to or not

I put ‘styling’ clothes on

They’re all store-bought

I want to think I’m cool

With what I’ve got

But mostly because

I care a lot

I may be boasting

Take your best shot

**

Listen closely

To what time tells

Make a change for the better

As if there is nothing else

Some things

May stay the same

But best to share the wealth

If just for health

Best to open up and share

From our top shelf
