These days a cop with any decency at all looks like a hero,
The millionaire knows billionaires who think that he's a zero,
The shoes a lord rejected are a godsend to the churl,
And an immie in the shower looketh mighty like a pearl.
So remember on those days when in your bed you shoulda stood,
That somewhere there is someone who makes even you look good,
It's only your perspective that has got you in a muddle,
You ain't too small a frog: you just been in too big a puddle . . .
