They walk the canal at lunchtime

They walk the canal at lunchtime,

Two executives from the Council,

Always in deep conversation,

Ignoring the Swans and Ducks

And the Waterhen as she struggles

Across the water,

They often stop

Look seriously at each other

Maybe they have figured

The origin of time

The Maltus Theory on Population

Or what caused a printer to run out of paper.
