I did my calculations
For the Coop
Number of items
Only need one bag
I usually take two
One I thought will do
Coming home really was a drag

You foolish man
It isn’t the item number
Now that matters
It’s the weight of things
All gathered in one bag
No wonder coming home
You’re shattered
You must have looked
Completely an old lag

Having been a preacher
There’s a lesson
Listen now
I’ll deliver it to you
We often think to solve
Another’s problems
Think twice now think twice
If you do

We analyse and estimate
The issue
We think we understand
All is in view
How easy we go wrong
Thinking number never weight
Unwise to try to walk
In another’s shoe
