88. The Rich Man
 
THE rich man has his motor-car, 
  His country and his town estate. 
He smokes a fifty-cent cigar 
      And jeers at Fate. 
  
He frivols through the livelong day,         5
  He knows not Poverty, her pinch. 
His lot seems light, his heart seems gay; 
      He has a cinch. 
  
Yet though my lamp burns low and dim, 
  Though I must slave for livelihood—  10
Think you that I would change with him? 
      You bet I would!
