You were born at a private hospital

I was delivered at the village by grandma

We both saw the light of dawn

 

You went to an expensive international school

I attended a run-down public school

We both learnt how to spell ‘pig’

 

You woke up from a bed with a thick mattress

I woke up from a mat on the hard floor

We both had a thousand colored dreams

 

You wore the latest jeans from Vision City

I wore faded jeans from the second-hand

We both covered our nakedness

 

Now, I wear a tuxedo suit

And drive the latest car

While you’re digging a drain

For a Chinese construction firm

 

I climbed the rainbow

In search of the stars

While you were having fun

With your dads money

Sorry my brother!
