Work Word & Friend


                     "Be true to your work, your word, and your friend."
                                   — Henry David Thoreau
       
       
              Looking for a duty you can easily shirk?
       Try messing with my work.
           Want a promise you can laugh at as absurd?
              Try mocking my word.
        Need commitment as deserted as a dead end?
                     Try taking on my friend.
     These three I'd give life all over again to defend.
       Its truth's in what it's for, not what it's against,
       not by what's died dead, but through what's commenced:
                            my work, my word, my friend.
