    Actually, I heard that a very ancient sage wrote those very same words on a very ancient Egyptian papyrus, the fragments of which were found in a secret cave among the ruins of Alexandria. Along with a pure gold small statue of a tinee tabbee.

    Very nice! I was trying to think of a haiku, but it would take me weeks. Ever such a lovely one from Pyrit. Must foster some mama cats with babies this spring, and send a donation to the Empty Cages Collective, too!
