My little victim, let me trouble you
To fix your active mind on




The WATERBEETLE here shall teach

A sermon far beyond your reach:

He flabbergasts the Human Race

By gliding on the water's face

With ease, celerity, and grace;

But if he ever stopped to think

Of how he did it, he would sink.


Don't ask Questions!
