The Two Kinds of People
By Ella Wheeler Wilcox

There are two kinds of people on earth to-day; 
Just two kinds of people, no more, I say. 

Not the sinner and saint, for it's wellunderstood, 
The good are half bad and the bad are halfgood. 

Not the rich and the poor, for to rate a man'swealth, 
You must first know the state of his conscience andhealth. 

Not the humble and proud, for in life's little span, 
Who puts on vain airs is not counted a man. 

Not the happy and sad, for the swift flying years 
Bring each man his laughter and each man his tears. 

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 earth's masses 
Are always divided in just these two classes. 

And, oddly enough, you will find, too, I ween, 
There's only 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 others share 
Your portion of labor, and worry and care? 


Seeya 'round town, Moscow, because . . .

"Moscow Cares" (the most fun you can have with your pants on)
