I, no longer I, stand by Self, alone;

No longer think, one Choice in Decision;

Now Two must come to head, one Sound, one Tone;

In everyday Dealings, we must reason.

Consider other’s Wishes, our Woes;

Be mindful, be thrifty with our Pennies;

Careful of the Future’s possible Blows;

By staying Safe, not spending at our Ease.

But watchful for the First of the month’s Take;

We work to build one Home in Companion;

We rake all that we can from what we make;

Spend next month’s Boon on new Reparations.

  ‘Tis a sad State, one would think, fraught with Pain;

  ‘Tis work in common, shared, makes my Love gain.
