EVERYONE

Everyone here is a winner at sport,
scoring goals when their eyes are shut tight.
Everyone here has expensive new shoes
that are polished – and never too tight.
Everyone here has a house full of books
and reads one in bed every night.
 
Everyone here has adventurous trips
to places that I’ve never seen.
Everyone here has gazillions of friends
and brothers who’ve never been mean.
Everyone here is clever and thin
and their uniform’s ironed and clean.
 
Everyone here has a whopping great house,
with chocolates and sweets guaranteed.    
Everyone here lives a life without sad,
a life full of trips to the sea.
Everyone here has a mum and a dad.
Everyone here, except me.
