The Finish Line

Any time you think that in some particular situation,
things couldn’t possibly be other than they are…well…well…


If you’re just as amazed as the next guy,
he’s not sufficiently amazed.


It is for those not running the race,
to establish the Finish Line.



First voice (a bit peeved): “Boy, people sure can make a lot outta nothing.”

Second voice (a bit surprised): “That’s their job – I thought you knew.”



If you don’t mind the possibility
of a lotta stuff piling up all at once,
you can skip over a bunch of the preliminaries.



Anything that’s said is true;
but forever will its operational correctness be debated.

(That, of course, Dear Dr. Procter,
is how correctness is established in the City.)
