The Meaning of Life - A poem

The stone found it lying by the riverside
Could not identify it
So stone took it to the tree
The tree knew not what it was
But said the mole might know
So stone took it to the mole
Who examined it from his hole
And said in whole
He did not know
So stone went from the molehill
To the mountain and climbed
To the top and then stopped
Then asked the mountain
The mountain thought for a time
Then said it was simple enough
Which was the one thing
That none but the mountains themselves
Could identify
Down by the riverside
Stone had found
The meaning of life

Hello Blake the nursey is here to inspect some of your hubs, as you have been so supportive of me. For a start I love the way you put Amazon down the left side, hell I have never seen it before, how novel!!! As for the poem I loved it as a fellow or feline poet myself :)

Thank you, You actually noticed. I looked over many hubs and found good ideas all around, but my wee bit of design training noticed that most hubs here tended to be a little long (scrolling a lot), a bit right handed (all of them right justified) or carbon copies of each other (especially ad placement wise)...I also didn't want google ads between the poem title and the poem itself. You really caught that quick - I have not had any other comments on it yet.

Ahh what good company a kitty like yourself must be, a poet in a nurse uniform - you are my ideal fetish. By the way are you Blondepoet RN?

What is a RN Blake? Does that stand for runaway nurse ROFL!!

There are a several RN word plays that come to mind, and some of them could lead to ROFL. But none of them are likely to not get flagged for, hmmm...unsolicited content.

So I shall be a gentleman, and assume that what ever your qualifications, get me a Blondepoet RN (Right Now!)
