Samuel And Harold Discuss Ovid's Dictum

Rating: 3.1

S You look much the same, Harry
H You don’t look much different, Sam
S Though times change
H They don’t stay the same
S Or perhaps they seem to change
H Or seem to be different
S And we change too
H We’re not quite the same
S Though perhaps they only seem to change because we’ve changed
H Perhaps we’re different and they only seem to change

S On the other hand, perhaps times do change and we only seem to change

I always expect Ovid to get egg on his face! Sorry. However, a grand work Michael. As thought encouraging as ever.
