The Little People
Author: Tricia


This world has millionares and billionares.
Types of people we really don't need.

They have all the money, and us little people
well we have very little.
You have pro-sportsmen that make thousands of thousands of dollars.
If one person could give me 5 reasons why those people deserve that money and how they are bettering our children.
Then maybe I wouldn't have this so called chip on my shoulder.

Ya see we have teachers, police officers, daycares, and stay at home moms.
These people don't make thousands of thousands of dollars a year.
These are the reasons why I believe they are important to us.
Teachers they shape the future with our children,
they spend that extra time to educate
and make sure your children can grow up smart and make a better living.
Cops well they keep us safe most of the time.
Daycares well they help ya out when you have to work
those 12 hour days just to make ends meet.
Stay at home moms, have one of the hardest jobs I think.
Not only do they take care of children 24/7
but also have the responsiblity to keep the house clean and meals prepared.
Maybe this world needs to rethink who the big people in the world should be.
I aint saying if your a pro at what ever sport you dont deserve the credit.
But when you wine and put a complaint in for more money,
think of us little people down here on the bottom.

The little people that helped make you who you are,
that helped protect you.
That helped or are helping educate your children and grandchildren.
