TITLE: The Rich Kids

Our parents were not wealthy, (in terms of what they owned)
But they sure knew the way to turn a house into a home.
My dad, he never missed a day of work in his whole life.
My mom, she worked at home being a mother and a wife.

With a brother and two sisters, we could make life like a zoo.
But our folks were always there for us, and knew just what to do.
Our dad he never beat us, that just was not his way,
And mom could solve those problems that came up every day.

We kept them pretty busy, running here and running there,
But they were always willing, and they didnít seem to care.
We always had good food to eat, and somewhere warm to sleep.
We always had some clothes to wear and shoes upon our feet.

We knew some kids with money, from a family with means,
But we were happier than them, (to me thatís how it seems).
I guess itís not the money, what you have or who you know,
With everything considered weíre the richest kids I know.

Meter issues in the last stanza but otherwise a very interesting and well done poem.

I like this! It may not break any original ground, but it's got a great lilt and meter, and the rhymes are spot-on. Good job!
