Two Men

A man stands,

Proud and tall,

Another,

Shameful and shrunken,

A man sits,

Erect and poised,

Another,

Hunched and fidgety,

A man speaks,

Loud and clear,

Another,

Feeble and unintelligibly,

A man Lives,

Long and wealthy,

Another,

Short and poor,

A man has an opinion,

His own and cherished,

Another,

His own and cherished.
