mr nothing reads the verse

mr nothing drank a glass of water
as he couldn’t remember the taste
just like the citizens of kirrha did
so unaware of the nebros’s advice

(by the way the asclepiad gave his scion
a really good reason to establish the oath)

that evening he was going to read
a book of english verse as given
so that he could see the islanders
through their genderless language

but as he began to wonder whether
a watergaw beyond the downpour
is as colourful as the rainbow that
he knew it will remain unanswered
