This is our Point

The Rich
Are at the head of the Camel,
All aboard now,
For this is the ship of the desert.

And we ought to be all in this together.
Leading us then at the head
Of all that they own,
And that is a great deal,
Which also includes all of us
Who are now rowing,
On the seas of sand.

But we now have a grip
On the needle of life.
And therefore
A hold on the Rich who are leading
The Camel to the eye.

Whilst it is us who cling
To the taper of the needle,
We remain nearest to the point
Yet we still have hope,
And they at the eye?
They, have it not so easy.
