A Marriage of Equals

By David Mendosa

A marriage of equals is harder by far
Than to launch a huge rocket to transit a star
And send digital data from there back to earth;
From the cost of such data, they must have some worth.

A marriage of equals that works is worth more
Than the bits of all data a computer can store,
Since success in such union takes more than just will;
It takes all of the sum of humanity’s skill.

When two equals get married, they must share their hearts,
And not only their minds and their physical parts;
They must seek the same goals on the inward-bound trip;
For their lives go together on the inner-space ship.
