The Incident

"Please Pardon my Protrusion"
Said the dolphin to the whale
"It's no bother" the other
"Won't you please excuse my tale"

Though politely whale acknowledged
That he would indeed excuse
The compunctious clumsy porpoise
That bumped his whale caboose

He wondered in his whale mind
Just how a little dolphin
Had succeeded in his swimming
To run right into his bottom

On the other hand the dolphin
Put to mind this mental morsel
How does a two-ton whale tale
Wind up upon my dorsal

With both the creatures thinking
That the other was in error
They took their separate stories
And two truths for forever.
