Nostra et Aliena

Here is a distich by Michele Verinus:

Nostra et Aliena
Ne tua contemnas, aliena negotia curans;
An tibi te quisquam iunctior esse potest?

The vocabulary is keyed to the DCC Latin Vocabulary list. All the words in this poem are on that list:

aliēnus -a -um: foreign, strange
an: or
contemnō -temnere -tempsī -temptum: despise, scorn, disdain
cūrō -āre: care for (+ acc.)
et: and
iungō iungere iūnxī iūnctum: join
nē: lest, that not
negōtium -ī n.: business
noster nostra nostrum: our
quis- quicquam/quidquam: any (single) person, anyone at all
sum, esse, fuī: be, exist
tū tuī tibi tē: you (sing.)
tuus -a -um: your
