Baby is Born

Baby is born.

Baby is brought up in a mansion in the countryside. Baby has everything he needs, and more. Baby has the best food, baby has the best toys, baby even breathes the best air.

Baby goes to the top schools, baby is taught English, Maths, and confidence to the highest level. Baby goes to the best university. Baby walks straight into a high-paying occupation thanks to family contacts. Baby makes sure he makes friends with other babies in roles of high power and baby makes money. Baby makes sure his friends make money. Baby calls in debts and pulls strings and rises to power in politics.

Baby has the right look. Baby has the right luck. Baby becomes Prime Minister. Baby rules the country. Baby stops being Prime Minister. Baby calls in debts he accrued from his leadership and walks into a very high-paying job for a few years.

Baby retires. Baby moves into a mansion in the countryside. Baby has everything he needs, and more. Baby has the best food, baby has the best toys, baby even breathes the best air. Baby watches his baby get a high-paying job and rise to power. Baby dies, aged 90.

Baby is born.

Baby is brought up on a council estate. Baby has nothing. Baby is malnourished, baby has simple toys, baby breathes in toxic air from nearby factories.

Baby goes to state schools. Baby is taught keeping out of trouble, street smarts, and self loathing. Baby walks straight into unemployment. Baby makes friends with others like him. Baby gets a job in the factory. Baby never makes money.

Baby works so he can live. Baby works so his baby can live. Baby keeps working. Baby never retires. Baby dies, aged 60.
