What Would Henry Do?: Essays for the 21st Century

Abstract

I borrowed an axe to begin my hut.
It is always better to borrow than to buy,
For borrowing leaves only one axe
To be loaned, and after the loan, the return
Makes both borrower and lender feel good.
The lender feels good because he has loaned
His axe to a neighbor, and now that neighbor
Is a newfound friend. And the borrower feels good
Because he has gotten his house begun for free.
