Another bit of Lewis Carroll madness that makes soooo much sense!!!!!

 

 

 

You are old, Father William," the young man said,
"And your hair has become very white;
And yet you incessantly stand on your head --
Do you think, at your age, it is right?

 

"In my youth," Father William replied to his son,
"I feared it might injure the brain;
But, now that I'm perfectly sure I have none,
Why, I do it again and again."

 

"You are old," said the youth, "as I mentioned before,
And you have grown most uncommonly fat;
Yet you turned a back-somersault in at the door --
Pray, what is the reason for that?"

 

"In my youth," said the sage, as he shook his grey locks,
"I kept all my limbs very supple
By the use of this ointment -- one shilling a box --
Allow me to sell you a couple?"

 

"You are old," said the youth, "and your jaws are too weak
For anything tougher than suet;
Yet you finished the goose, with the bones and the beak --
Pray, how did you manage to do it?"

 

"In my youth," said his father, "I took to the law,
And argued each case with my wife;
And the muscular strength, which it gave to my jaw,
Has lasted the rest of my life."

 

"You are old," said the youth, "one would hardly suppose
That your eye was as steady as ever;
Yet you balanced an eel on the end of your nose --
What made you so awfully clever?"

 

"I have answered three questions, and that is enough,"
Said his father, "Don't give yourself airs!
Do you think I can listen all day to such stuff?
Be off, or I'll kick you downstairs.

Quoting Sophia2048:

 

Carroll was cool:-) 

As a poet, he can take conventional wisdom and make rhyme and reason.  

We are what we eat:  Exercise promotes health.  They are not a guarantee that we will live a moment longer.  There is little doubt that a healthy diet and moderate exercise can give us a better quality of life as we age.

I always loved poetry. Have a super Sunday my Dear!



But can you stand on your head?  LOL

 

And, yes, I have had a lovely Sunday--as I hope you have had.
