The Wisdom of Purzil Crofe

no man is an island

The Wisdom of Purzil Crofe
A busy man complained one day, “I have no time.”

“What’s that you say?” cried his friend a lazy fizz.
“You have, sir, all the time there is.
And plenty too, don’t doubt you do.
Merry sir, won’t you tarry

Have a glass with me of sherry
What’s a moment, more or less.
While we ponder nature’s wonders”

From the Devil’s Dictionary, more or less.

Clock, n. A machine invented by man to remind him of how much time remains to him.
