In The Shade

Must be nice to be,
Rock stone a river bottom,
Neva know sun hot.

(Must be nice to be, rock stone a river bottom.
Rock stone a river bottom, neva know sun hot.)

I saw river and stone and wanted to put in that Jamaican proverb; “Rock stone a riva bottom nuh know sun hot” which translates to “A stone at the bottom of a river never feels the heat of the sun.” It means those in easy circumstances do not realize the hardship of others.
