Two Kinds of People

Two Kinds of People
No; the two kinds of people on earth I mean
Are the people who lift and the people who lean.
Wherever you go you will find the world's masses
Are always divided in just these two classes.
And oddly enough, you will find too, I think
There is ony one lifter to twenty who lean.
In which class are you? Are you easing the load
Of overtaxed lifters who toil down the road?
Or are you a leaner, who lets other bear
Your portion of labor and worry and care?
-Ella Wheeler Wilcox
