A Quote by Franklin Pierce Adams on change, country, day, fate, heart, poverty, and slavery

The rich man has his motorcar, His country and his town estate, He smokes a fifty-cent cigar And jeers at Fate. He frivols through the livelong day, 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- Think you that I would change with him? You bet I would!

Franklin Pierce Adams (1881 - 1960)
