O we’re all in the same forest, you know,’
Announced the rabbit,
As they sat down to
Their weekly Saturday talk.
‘But each of us is assigned
His own separate tree.
Don’t ever tell anyone I told you but
It’s possible to be both Together and Apart.’
‘O I see,’ replied the duck. ‘That must be why
Everytime I find an Answer to something, it
Leads me to yet another Question.
It’s so silly even to think of it
But I often hear of students who
Finish their semesters with
And I once even met a bunch of squares
Who arranged their chairs into a circle.’
‘Oh that’s nothing at all,’ responded the rabbit.
‘On this day in history, Sir Isaac Newton
Invented gravity, before which mankind
Always floated happily through the air.’
They thus continued to regale each other
With all sorts of other pointless notions.
