‘Tis the way of the City
to give more attention to the production of the play
than to its writing.
Learn a lesson where you can:
Time always saves for a rainy day.
At certain important, if not stressful moments,
this one chap would tell himself,
“All right, all right, I’m thinking as fast as I can.”
And he would reply, “I know, I know, that’s what’s so frightening.”
“Why point out the obvious?”
“That doesn’t answer the question.”
“Thus provoked – I point out that on a ‘good’ day,
Everybody loves the king, so there.”
Do not let spatial confidence distract you from timely change,
for that which is so in Paris On Friday, on Saturday is no more.
