Limerick Variante
There was a young man who said, »God
Must think it exceedingly odd
If he finds that this tree
Continues to be
When there's no-one about in the Quad.«
Dear Sir,
Your astonishment's odd;
I am always about in the quad.
And that's why this tree
Will continue to be,
Since observed by
Yours faithfully,
God.
There was a young man who said, »God,
You must find it exceedingly odd
That a tree, as a tree,
Simply ceases to be
When there's no one about in the Quad."«
