High Tea With Lofty

Apr 2001

At afternoon tea with our know-it-all friend
Lofty Ness the giraffe,
I asked his opinion of the Quantum Theory
Just for a bit of a laugh

'Cos his constant air of superior Ness
Was quite an irritation;
After all, it was only his neck that got him
Into higher education.

So I happily thought I'd stumped him when
"I'm sorry, my friend", he said,
"I'd love to explain, but whatever I say
Will only go over your head".
