One does do so to feel bright,

Two does do so to feel the light,

Three does do so to see life,

Four does do so to pass the night…


Five may do so to show enjoyment,

Six may write to counter the stress of employment,

Seven may find it necessary to refuse deployment,

Eight may do it as to his god he does repent…


Nine may do so to feel fine,

Ten may find it quite Zen,

Eleven may do so to achieve heaven,

Twelve might do it rather than to it shelve…
