If You Walk Long Enough (with apologies to Alice, from Wonderland)
Where shall I go from here? asks the dog.
Why bother? It is perfectly fine here in the sun, says the cat.
I don’t think it matters, if you have a mud wallow first, grunts the pig.
Keep walking, pull your share, wheezes the mule.
All roads lead somewhere, offers the cow, chewing her cud.
The world is a marvelous place, declares the spider.
Come, sit beside me, here in the parlor,
and I shall tell you.
