THE WAY OF ALL FLESH HALL OF MIRRORS by Samuel Butler

According to my copy, a man stands underneath a tree, holding his grey hat.

In the background are two smallish grey clouds.

The man has locks of brown and stands erect upon a smallish yellow mound.

He appears quite hale.

His topcoat is blue.


He has a satchel underneath his left arm.

Or a gun.

There is a church in the background.

Across from the man is a woman with massive petticoats adjusting her stocking.

The stocking is worsted wool of red and white stripe.

Could she be a strumpet?

And then for some reason, there’s the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

But there’s good news! It isn’t leaning anymore.

On to page one.

This book is printed in The United States of America.

By a small kangaroo, reading this book.
