Surely, it’s both

In a walk-by-eavesdrop
I heard a son
ask his father
why water was
Walking on
I thought to myself,
surely he means
but you never know,
not really.
Because when you think about it
(55 or 60% or so, lower when we cry)
it’s both.
Makes you wonder, doesn’t it,
why we learned to laugh?

Thank you for reading Surely, it’s both. I sincerely hope you have enjoyed it and I humbly appreciate your visiting the Book of Pain. As always, I look forward to your comments.
