That robert ripley smile

If at exactly


— the witching hour! —

I told two friends

that to-day

was my birthday,

& they, in turn,


told two people,

& they told two


& so on and so on


By the following day


in the world

would know it was

my birthday

and I would still be spending

it alone with

my slide-ruler
