“I bargained with Life for a penny
and Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store”

“For Life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.”

“I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid.”
