es, I was poor, let me stand
here and let the whole world know.
My house was so dilapidated; when
I went to bed I could look through
the ceiling and see the moon, stars,
Jupiter, and Mars.

It rained inside and leaked outside
I placed a washtub at the foot of the
bed, because the bed could not be moved
right or left, up or down. I kept a
prayer in my heart, a smile on my face,
because I knew God had a better place.

I had one coat, it served a three
fold purpose. When it rained,
it was my raincoat. When I got up
to cook, it was my housecoat. When
I went to school it was my overcoat.
I did my work and followed the school
rules and this is not a JOKE!
