Each mortal thing does one thing and the same:
Deals out that being indoors each one dwells;
Selves - goes itself; myself it speaks and spells,
Crying "What I do is me: for that I came."

"I'm an arboreal pachyderm, small and compact, And I've chosen this tree to make up for its lack Of an elephant."
