 Elsie`s Poetry



There stands the elite the select few
And over here well over here stands you
You and I are not even in their league
Or this is what we`re led to believe.

They`re really no different from you and I
So where does `elite` come from and why?
Some are genuinely gifted I can`t deny
But to most of them this does not apply.

They think it sets them above the rest
And think that we should be impressed,
Self-importance is not a good trait
Often I think they should be put straight.

Rich or poor good or bad clever or not
When your time is up these are forgot
They will perish just like us all
When our maker comes to call.

We were all born and we will all die
Elite or not this they can`t defy,
We`re all equal when it comes to death
Just like us they`ll draw their last breath.
