Please read the Section II male version, or female version, of this poem first; then read this version.
Bargain With Life
I will not bargain with life for a penny
Because, then life would pay no more,
However I would beg at evening
When counting my scanty store.
For Life is just an employer,
And gives me what I ask,
But once I have set the wages,
Then, I will bear the task.
I will not work for a menial's hire,
I will not be in a state of dismay
Because any wage I ask of Life,
Life will willingly pay.
