Matter of Factly

I went down a gopher hole. I soon ran into the gopher.

The gopher said, “What do you want?”

I said, “I was just curious about where you live.”

The gopher said, “There’s not much to see. It’s really just a long hole I dug in the ground.”

I said, “I’m amazed that you dug it.”

The gopher said, “I have a lot of time.”

I said, “If I only had one thing to do, I would do amazing things.”

The gopher said, “You’re philosophizing greatness into something that’s matter of fact.”

I glumly said, “You’re right.”

The gopher said, “But what can you do, it’s your nature.”

I love the gopher.
