Well I could go on and on about nothing particular but that would be a waste of space and we all know how short of space we are getting in this modern world of ours, what with the global population exploding and us chopping down the rainforests and and building cities with huge carparks and casinos and sportsgrounds and digging up the ground for oil and coal and gold and uranium and diamonds and stuff and paving over the former forests and the farmland just so's we can get from 'A' to 'B' faster and other people can go from 'B' to 'A' faster and I don't know why we can't just decide to all meet at 'C' and have a big party or something, then we could just work out where we wanted to be which would probably turn out to be 'D' so we'd then have to build another road over some other forest and increase the pressure on the indiginous flora and fauna until they cease to exist in the wild and we have to build a zoo to keep all this stuff alive so that future generations can go and see what used to live in the forest that was levelled to make way for the zoo and the roads that go from 'A' to 'B' and 'B' to 'C' and 'C' to 'A' and somewhere in there is a road to 'D' so we can all have a road to roam because all roads lead to Rome and how do they get all those roads over the water anyway because there's a lot of places where you can't get to Rome without crossing the water so unless they build the roads under the water I don't think it's true that all roads lead to Rome, but I'm sure that if they did then there'd be a big traffic jam in Rome with all those cars and buses and motorbikes and trucks and four wheel drives coming from all over the planet, all coming to Rome even though all they wanted to do was to get from 'D' to 'E' and stop off on the way to find a nice quiet picnic spot where they could just like on the grass for a while without having to worry about what they should be doing at work or what to have for dinner tonight because if it's a really nice picnic then they can just eat more of the picnic and they won't need dinner which means they can just stay halfway between 'D' and 'E' forever until the grass grows over their toes and the forest returns and the birds sit ing the branches singing tra-la-la-la-la and the sun shines down and we can all have a really nice day.

So I'll just give you one of my favourite poems instead:


'Twas brillig and the slithy toves
did gyre and gimbal in the wabe
all mimsy were the borogoves
and the mome raths outgrabe
Beware the jabberwock my son
the jaws that bite, the claws that snatch
beware the jub jub bird and shun
the frumious bandersnatch
He took his vorpul sword in hand
Long time the manxom foe he sought
Till rested he, by the tum tum tree
And stood a while in thought
And as in uffish thought he stood
The jabberwock, with eyes of flame
Came wiffling through the tulgy wood
And burbled as it came
One Two! One Two!
And though and through!
The vorpul blade went snicker snack
He left it dead, and with it's head
he went gallumphing back
And hast thou killed the jabberwock ?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
Oh frabjous day! Calloo Callay!
He chortled in his joy
'Twas brillig and the slithy toves
did gyre and gimbal in the wabe
all mimsy were the borogoves
and the mome raths outgrabe
