Magpie Tales # 39
but never without laughter.
Like the chicken and the egg
one has to follows after...
A chicken rushing round and round
in circulatory motion,
is just like us in certain states
when, minus head or notion,
we chase our tails to no effect.
For we are doomed to meet ourselves
back where we had started-
once the circle is complete...
But, do not be downhearted!
Shrug your shoulders, give a laugh,
(He who laughs last, laughs longest!)
and remember this old saw -
The devil take the hindmost!
Now, kindly close the door...
N.B. A 'saw' in this context is a saying!
