A guy falls in a hole

Updated on July 18, 2012

“The human voice can never reach

the distance that is covered

by the still small voice of conscience.”

Mahatma Ghandi

"Whoever undertakes to set himself up as judge

in the field of truth and knowledge

is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods."

Albert Einstein

Down There Before

This guy is walking down the street; falls into a hole.
The walls are so deep and the hole is so steep
he can't claw his way out. He begins shouting,
"hey is there anybody there, I need help!"

About then a priest happens by, peers into the hole,
" My son" he says "what has happened?"
You see father I was minding my own business
and before I knew it I fell into this hole...

no matter how hard I scratch and claw
it only makes things worse.
The cleryman pauses, writes out a prayer,
drops in the hole and says"
God bless you my son" then goes on his way.

After a short while our guy begins
shouting for help once more
when a doctor happens by.

" Hey Doc, I seem to have fallen
and can't get up"! Without hesitation
he whips out his P-pad, writes out
a script and drops it in the hole.

" This should help, call my office
for a follow up as he hurries on his way.

Finally a friend stops, looks down and says
" Hey man; you okay? Our guy replies:
I just can't seem to get out of this hole I'm in.

The friend tells him to step back
and proceeds to jump into the hole.

Our guy: stunned and dismayed
looks at him and says
"Okay; whadda ya stupid,
now where both stuck down here.

The friend turns, softly grins,
then calmly brushes himself off
& says " yeah, ya see,
I've been down here before
I know the way out.

When your stuck in a hole all by yourself
you find truth in the value of friendship...

"Try again, fail again. Fail better." Samuel Beckett
