Taking breather from their drink
Three men started in to think
Whether breath is in or out:
‘Out,’ said one, ‘without a doubt!’
He began to blow and spray –
Nearly blew them all away –
In due course, ran out of puff;
All blown out, and in a huff!
Second man said, ‘It should be
That we breathe in constantly!’
So, to prove his view was true,
Took in breath, until he flew,
All blown up, like a balloon –
Don’t think he’ll be landing soon!
Third man gave it as his call,
‘We don’t need to breathe at all!’
So he did what he had said,
Till, quite soon, he fell down dead:
Thus it’s clear such things should be
Left to what comes naturally.
