The Sum is More Than its Parts


The price to pay for faking it
Is not to know how you might feel
The price to pay for lying 
Is not to tell real from unreal

The price for cheating someone
Is to cheated be yourself
The price for wrong abandonment 
Is to be put upon a shelf

The moment that your usefulness
To someone else is done
Ay, making others fearful feel
Will teach you how to run

The price for stealing is to lose
Much that you might own
As someone who leaves other ones' 
Possessions well alone

The price to pay for giving in
To inapprop'riate lust
Is just to stand and have to watch
When part from you they must

Tis by your own beliefs must be
That you companions find
And by their own beliefs they will
Unpleasantly remind

The individual who feels the need
To be unfair his brother to
In order that himself he
Have some happiness in view

For if the two of them in time
Worked together as a team
What sunshine of abundance 
Upon them both would gleam! 24 more words
