The Elevated Life

Although a fine equestrian
with gracefulness and poise
his brashness and presumption
expressed a hot air vented noise

Well dressed in noble finery
precisely pressed by lesser hands
he would brandish prance and swagger
his charmless arrogant demands

His every whim was catered for
champagne caviar and wines
given all and everything he owned
heaved from gold and diamond mines

Then one day whilst descending
the elevator came to grief
asking all within to bravely grin
for hours on end without relief

They shared the Janitor’s bottled water
a selfless generous donation
among the decency of others there
he found himself below his station

When finally a way was found
to release the adverse door
each and every other one
helped him most kindly off the floor
