The beach mascot has twisted tusks
The forest mascot lies in the alto range
The third ally perceives these twists
In negotiation, a tie to beaming acceptance
The taxi takes them all home again
Like tourists, or else, economically
We will be soiled, unable to ply or use
Anything until May.
Gratitude and treachery are merely the two extremities of the same procession.
You have seen all of it that is worth staying for when the band and the gaudy
officials have gone by.
-- Mark Twain, "Pudd'nhead Wilson's Calendar"
