Forth went the candid man

by
 Forth went the candid man
And spoke freely to the wind --
When he looked about him he was in a far strange country.
Forth went the candid man And spoke freely to the stars -- Yellow light tore sight from his eyes.
"My good fool," said a learned bystander, "Your operations are mad.
" "You are too candid," cried the candid man, And when his stick left the head of the learned bystander It was two sticks.
