Ode of a rich and poor

In every
Generation,

There is
An ascension

Just like
An hot air balloon

Thus bringing forth
A nouveau riche

As this happens,
Somewhere somehow

Tyre deflates
Nouveau pauvre

Suddenly becomes
Of a wealthy.

Like breath
Like death,

Beyond wishes
Some are

Born rich
As others

Become
Impoverished;

Acknowledging
Indeed, times change.
