The Other Half



The other half
lived in huge houses
near the park
and shopped at
George Henry Lee
or
Hendersons.
They stayed at
The Adelphi Hotel
where the doormen dressed
like guards

The other half
went to school
in Sandfield Park
and slept there!
If you climbed the wall
you might catch a glimpse
of them,
playing Rugby.
The other half
were posh.
So it didn't matter that
they had it all,
because,
who'd want to be posh
anyway?
