The Isle of Logic :
In the isle of logic lived three men
They raised two roosters and a hen,
A strong brown mule and a black sheep
But the sea around was so deep.
And once came a drought, so severe;
Rain scarce and water so, so dear,
And the thirstís wrinkle in the throat,
And the clouds play away and never weep,
The isle dwellers then took to a life boat,
And sailed to clouds far away deep and so deep,
As the birds, the sheep and the brown mule
Observed the sun, the sea and a dry pool.
