Being Ernest

Ernest is as honest
As an earnest fool can be,
Although he never earns much,
Earning even less than me

Ernest lives in earnest
                        Which indeed he might resent,                     
         For he can become tenser        
                                     To a disordered extent.                                     

If Ernest was less honest,
(Which enters the very core)
He would be far less earnest
And certainly less poor.
