One day a man went to the seashore,
waded in…
a ruler and a notepad in hand
took a measure from his knees to the sand
noted it on his pad
A week later the man returned
and measured from his waist to the sand
duly noted
on his pad
Another week later the man returned
took a measure from his neck
to the sand
again…
noted on his pad
It was quite some time
before anyone noticed
the man no longer took measures
and was not seen nor heard from again
Washed ashore was found
a ruler
and a soggy note pad
that read:
“final entry: my calculations must have been off
and now i fear
i’ve gotten in…
way over my head”
(searching a standard
he himself only had…
but a Holy Ghost of a chance
of ever measuring up to)
