The king took the visiting prince out on the balcony
overlooking the village and said, “Behold, the man who
continually speaks wiser than he really knows.”
And the guest asked, “And who might that be, my liege?”
“The people, my boy, all the people.”
“Tis safer to misspeak in the library than the boudoir.”
(“Beg pardon my dear, did I step on your lips?”)
Humor makes some laugh,
a few think.
“From time to time, men may err.”
“Who told you that?”
“That man over there.”
Reading in the dark
can save a lot of time.
A man who leaves no foot prints,
either has no feet,
or has no audience
with eyes tuned to his foot frequency.
