The Meaning of Life


The Meaning of Life
from Brutal Like All Olympic Games, by Don Burness

The painter Bonnard knew
Picasso and Andy Warhol knew
Henry James knew
Dorothy Parker knew
P.G. Wodehouse knew
E.B. White knew
Queen Victoria surely knew
And I know
and I taught my students
that the meaning of life
is
the dachshund!

I've suspected as much. But now I know. Great find!
