Egad!
THE PIPER REVISITED
          	
          	Piping down the valleys green,
          	Piping songs of pleasant glee,
          	Everywhere I went were seen,
          	Nature’s joys laid bare to me.
          	
          	So I sang and piped along,
          	In the glen and by the wood.
          	On and on I played my song,
          	Reaching everything I could.
          	
          	Then a child I chanced to see,
          	On the path just north of town.
          	As I neared, he said to me:
          	“Piper, why don’t you pipe down!”
          	
          	Egad!
