“I say!” Said he to me,
“Have you ever seen with your ears or heard with your eyes?”
As you can imagine, I looked at him with dubious surprise.
“What say you?” Said I to him great suspicion in my voice.
“It is but just a matter,
just a little matter of choice!”
Said he in reply.
Echoes of stark white buildings
near fifty floors high
filled with stark white coats
and a lake with a boat beneath a sunny sky came to mind.
“Kind Sir,” I said with a smile
unwilling to cause the man pain,
“Have you per chance been
speaking to the walrus
and the carpenter again?”
“Why yes I have how could you
tell?” His eyes bright with glee.
“Well I can not lie
and I’ll tell you true, they’ve
also been talking to me!”
