The Journeyman Spinners

Friend, if you model your meter
To fit the demands of the Press,
Your verse, like some pompous "greeter"
Wears a drab and "respectable" dress
But if you toil, like a journeyman spinner,
With worth and perfection your goal
You may want for the price of your dinner
But you'll add to the wealth of your soul!
