"Hip, Or Genteel?"

Is she hip, or genteel?

From an upper-crust family-
A member of the local gentry,
Who's just decided
She wants to ramble around with me?

Have some fun,
That she never has had-

A kind of
Poor little rich girl-
And isn't it just so sad?

Though it's more likely,
That she just wants to be bad-

Her own warped way
Of punishing her family,
For giving her
Everything she ever wanted-

A room
Full of high-priced junk,
That has left her feeling
Nothing but haunted:

So is she hip, or genteel?

Wanting to see
What it's like
On the wrong side
Of the tracks-

Find herself
Among the working class....
