You're a success

Because you drive a Merc

With personalised arrogance.

I'm a success

Because my wife laughs

At my rubbish jokes.

 

You're a success

Because you manage

A department of six.

I'm a success

Because I'm a clerk

Who finishes at five.

 

You're a success

Because you have

Hundreds of friends.

I'm a success

Because I have

That one best mate.

 

You're a success

Because you wear

Expensive gold watches.

I'm a success

Because my favourite watch

Belonged to my dad.

 

You're a success

Because you finished

A post graduate course.

I'm a success

Because I completed

This poem.
