She found something to spur him on real quick,
saying most sincerely, after handing him his measuring stick,
“Use this, since It’s used many times a day,
to check the depth of the things that we do not say,
and the area of gratitude never expressed,
and how much the weight of ignorance can cause unrest.
It is also used to check the length of time that we don’t pay attention,
and many other things, too numerous to mention.”
Glaring at her, dusty and in disarray
Needless to say, his horse threw him off and galloped away.
