Many hands make light work.–Adagia
An old minstrel feeling weakly and sick Called his bard pals to help him right quick; Though seemingly absurd, Each took up a single word... That verse got constructed... brick by brick.

Let’s write poetry together!
When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
