The Entertainment

You look down your nose at me in disdain

Because to you

I’m just here to entertain

I give you a fake name and a smile

Because I know you’ll only be here for a little while

Then you will leave

To find another

That’s how it is for the entertainment

We’re here for you to enjoy

Nothing but a toy

Until it’s on to the next one

Authors, painters, midnight dancers, singers

Etcetera

Here for the high rollers and all classes of swingers

As long as they have money

They got us between their fingers

But they’ll never know the inner us

The haunting thoughts that always linger

    Sounds like how the rich thinks about the needy and downright poor. The haves and have nots dueling it out. Age old story.
