REVODNEB*



From time to time the king will disguise himself
and go about the city.

From time to time the king will disgust himself
and go about the city.

How many theoretical impossibilities are really impossible?
Answer: not all of them. For example:

Candy comes from babies.
Take it or leave it.

The race is not always to the bathroom,
nor the victory to the vanquished.

I can prepare a bowl of one potato soup.
I can prepare a bowl of two potato soup.

I can prepare a bowl of three potato soup.
Get the picture? Ready for more?

The king, in rags, in disgust, is compelled to shout
lies to passers-by:

Agriculture is thriving!
Retail sales rebounded last quarter!

***

Where has his majesty gone?
Search me. Did you look under every rock?
