Life in the West

We all are to the manor born, these days, as nobles,
Also servants.  See the former strut and preen.
Their lives are good, their incomes ample.  They
Don't want for anything.  The latter live in poverty.
One doesn't get a lot of money when one has
The servant's role.  The tasks assigned are dull,
Demeaning, constant.  One does not advance.
The manor's hierarchy's fixed.  The nobles thrive,
And always will.  The servants don't and won't.
