For finding a nail the shoe was fixed.
For gaining a shoe the horse was available.
For having a horse the rider was on stage.
For involvement of the rider the battle was won.
For winning the battle the kingdom was gained.
And all because of the horseshoe nail.

Hi Dave,

My, someone's keen! A neat example of how contemporary language can change the flavour of something so ancient and familiar. Simplicity becomes management-speak.

Not a lot unlike that game, 'Six Degrees Of Separation'. Or better still, the butterfly effect. Chaos is glorious.

You're quick of the blocks. I'm still scratching my head. I've had a couple of stabs but nothing poetic is coming out of me. Perhaps I need to sleep on it.

Well done you - this reminds me of the house that Jack built.

Mathmatically known as the butterfly effect.
The truth that initial conditions/variables small or not can have a profound or even determining effect.

It in part explains the nature of our universe.


My best

We often forget that we all contribute in some measure.
The story goes that a President of the US was visiting Cape Canavarel. He met the toilet cleaner and asked him what his job was. The man said "My job is to get a man on the moon".
