Moral Of The Story - Poem by Patti Masterman

Wish in one hand
Want in the other
If I'd hope that we could marry
You'd have turned out my brother
If I'd wanted a soul mate
There'd ever be no other
Wish in one hand
Want in the other.

What trouble it a man
To lose his whole soul
When the former's a dream
And the latter, a hole
At the bottom of a life
Of pettiness and strife
What trouble it a man
To lose his whole soul?

There's a moral behind
Each mortal coil
Be it ever so humble
Or worn out with toil
Forgotten or remembered
If the heart's been dismembered
The moral's left behind
Like a royal bloodline.
