Fourteen Divided By Two

Fourteen silent meditative years passed
before the ascetic returned at last.
The man of common sense, a twin brother  
asked what "years of denial had amassed"  
Whence in fourteen strides the ascetic led    
to the wider river in its deeper bed  
and calmly walked over. The twin brother    
paid a ferryman for crossing, and said  
"See! With two pennies I have done what you    
have wasted fourteen years the same to do."  
In this comedy of the twin brothers  
We decide for ourselves just what is true.  
We'd upbraid one or upbraid the other 
and they yet one, born of the same mother.
