Thank you Lynn E. Harvey for the spotlight!
One day, making tracks
In the prairie of Prax,
Came a North-Going Zax
And a South-Going Zax.
And it happened that both of them came to a place
Where they bumped. There they stood.
Foot to foot. Face to face.
â€œLook here, now!â€ the North-Going Zax said. â€œI say!
You are blocking my path. You are right in my way.
Iâ€™m a North-Going Zax and I always go north.
Get out of my way and let me go forth!â€
â€œWhoâ€™s in whose way?â€ snapped the South-Going Zax.
I always go south, making south-going tracks.
So youâ€™re in MY way! And I ask you to move
And let me go south in my south-going groove.â€
Then the North-Going Zax puffed his chest up with pride.
â€œI never,â€ he said, â€œtake a step to one side.
And Iâ€™ll prove to you that I wonâ€™t change my ways
If I have to keep standing here fifty-nine days.â€
â€œAnd Iâ€™ll prove to YOU,â€ yelled the South-Going Zax,
â€œThat I can stand here in the prairie of Prax
For fifty-nine years! For I live by a rule
That I learned as a boy back in South-Going School.
Never budge! Thatâ€™s my rule. Never budge in the least!
Not an inch to the west! Not an inch to the east!
Iâ€™ll stay here, not budging! I can and I will
If it makes you and me and the whole world stand still!â€
