.........................One Simple Question


When we reach for clouds...do we use two hands?
Or the one...
Careful, careful, with the answer, now.
Just a simple question...or is it?

Use two hands, we leave behind our fellow man.
Use one, we hang one hand useless...
Should it be?
Strength enough to grab the collar

Of our neighbor, who only looks to the clouds,
does not reach...
Grab the neighbor, grab the clouds...
Use two hands,

And bring three together.
