A buddy system, such a life saver,
No one should ever have to go it alone;
Weather, fair or stormy,
Someone’s there to lend a hand.
Independence isn’t all it’s cracked up to be;
Interdependence, is more amenable for living.
Their torches flickering in the freshly mown grass;
The fireflies dance for both friend and foe.
