We each would like the world to know,
Our love for ev'ry one does flow.
Our great humanity does show,
From head to toe, from head to toe.
We say treat each as though t'were you,
It is the kindest thing to do.
Rewards of grace you will accrue,
Great blessings too, great blessings too.
For if you treat each one you meet,
With goodness and with love replete,
Your happiness will be complete,
And life is sweet, and life is sweet.
There's one more thing please be aware,
Do not forget to say a prayer,
That God will keep you in His care,
Both here and there, both here and there.

The monotetra is a new poetic form developed by Michael Walker. Each stanza contains four lines
in monorhyme. Each line is in tetrameter (four metrical feet) for a total of eight syllables. What makes
the monotetra so powerful as a poetic form, is that the last line contains two metrical feet, repeated.
It can have as few as one or two stanzas, or as many as desired.
Line 1: 8 syllables; A1
Line 2: 8 syllables; A2
Line 3: 8 syllables; A3
Line 4: 4 syllables, repeated; A4, A4
