Deep Belly-Buttons

I know of a gentle young lady, who told of a mystery, that's ancient and bold, a myth of old, so curious to people like me. This amiable lass, a woman of class, and violet hair to boot, laid eyes on me, my naked belly, and proclaimed with exuberant fact, "Did you know you've a deep belly-button, a cavern as deep as the sea?" and then she said, straight from her head, something I couldn't conceive. People like me, with this bantam innie, are deep creatures emotion-ally.
