Us (Version 2)



This and That loved Those and These

But always avoided Them.


They liked Them and a little of That,

But These were never Their friends.


It felt It didn’t belong with Them,

But was chummy with Hes and Shes.


Them like That and That liked Those,

But neither were fans of These.


One day They and Them met at

A stop with Hes and Shes.


Up walked Those and This and That,

Joined by It and These.


It followed the motley group as It

Boarded a local bus,


And panicked, until It recalled that We,

Together, all make Us.
