Once More

Why do we always insist on trailing a hand in the water,

As we travel the Styx with fate at our heals?

We know its chill flow will give us no quarter,

But we just can't resist how it feels,

And there it is, an answer without reason,

With nought but the humble need to implore,

To beg at the end of life's final season,

That we have one last chance to feel it once more.

Well you know me Po anything for a laugh, especially in that context. I'd like to think I could at least have a smile at the boatman's expense.

Once bitten... Beware strong currents lurk there.

Charon's choleric outburst's make him an irksome irascible fellow whose response would be forever in your mind for all eternity... and that's along long while.

"GET YOUR HANDS OUT OF THE WATER... N O W!

What a journey. I don't know about you Jason, I did it last time and will do again next time, just to wind him up. 😂
