Pro and Amateur Nouns

When I cook, I am cooking for "US"
Because I am an inclusive, loving old cuss
I do not exist to be separate, alone
If that were the case, I'd carry no phone
Oh no, there's much more to life than just "me"
Let's demonstrate and explore the magic word "WE"

"WE" provides unity and a feeling of strength
"WE" extends reach and adds to our length
"WE" is a wonderful word of relating
"WE"  in the context of two is elating
Meaning together and oneness, no longer apart
"WE" gives deep meaning to a loving man's heart

The words "me" and "mine" are selfish and shallow
Reflecting a heart and a mind that are fallow
Believing that self is the end all in life
When actually self is what causes all strife

I choose "US" and "OURS" for they are so cool
In a  world of us humans they truly do rule
And so I shall close this paean to "WE"
No ifs, ands or buts - "WE'RE" way more than "me"
