The world can be divided, the philosopher said,
between two groups of people: those who leave
pegs on the line , and those who don’t:
my first wife was a clearly a proponent
of the second school & I the first which might explain
why we split
even two marriages later
I am hesitant to put the pegs in a tray in case
my new partner is an adherent of the first school
though the presence of a peg tray clearly indicates
between the two schools
but my old self reasserts itself:
a leopard cannot change its spots.
- which school do you belong to?
- have you changed from one school of thought to another?
- can a leopard change its spots?
