My Sense Of Class

My Sense Of Class

Great wealth might easily buy

many valuable things,

like a new car, a big house,

and several diamond rings,

but it can never buy values that matter,

like heart and character and class

because a donkey is still a donkey

and an ass is still an ass,

which is why you can pay all you want

for a master to paint a fresco

on your newfangled outhouse

in perfect imitation of Van Gogh

and yet not at all change

the nature of the thing one bit:

the outhouse would still stink

because its foundation is full of shit.
