I Have It The Worst

Rest well for the night,
You’ve had a long day,
Full of fright,
Fora low pay.

Poor child,
Not gun what you deserved,
Things are worse for someone else?
Absurd!

I have a small house,
No premium food,
No fame and fortune,
Everyone else has it good!

Nowhere else in the world on this cold, lonely night,
Is someone else so full of fright.

It’s lies what they say.

Nowhere else in the world,
Is a place without light.

Nowhere else in the world are tears being shed,
As a family looks down at their own young, dead.

This is but a myth,
It cannot be true,
I have it the worst,
Not you!
