My Wage

I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more
However I begged at evening
When I counted by scanty store.

For Life is a just employer
He gives you what you ask
But once you have set the wages
Why, you must bear the task

I worked for a menial's hire
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life
Life would have paid.

-Jessie B. Rittenhouse

Don't settle for less.
Set your wage high,
And let Life pay you back.
