A Rib


One plus one, side by side, two is a way of life.
One plus two is three, in biblical times
only one bone was given from the body.
Many at once or many at all your back
will crack and your chest shall fall
because the selfish forsake the soulful bone.
Alone you cannot stand, but you have been
set free, the cage is gone until another
bone fills the cavity.
