Question

Guest

1. Four men sat down to play,

They played all night 'till break of day.

They played for gold and not for fun

With separate scores for everyone.

When they came to square accounts,

They all had made quite fair amounts.

Can you the paradox explain,

If no one lost, how could all gain?

2. Often talked of, never seen,

Ever coming, never been,

Daily looked for, never here,

Still approaching, coming near.

Thousands for it's visit wait

But alas for their fate,

Tho' they expect me to appear,

They will never find me here.

3. Alive without breath,

As cold as death.

Never thirsty,

Always drinking,

All in mail,

Never clinking.

4.This thing all things devours:

Birds, beast, trees, flowers;

Gnaws iron, bites steel;

Grinds hard stones to meal;

Slays kings, ruins town,

And beats high mountains down.

5.Large as a mountain, small as a pea,

Endlessly swimming in a waterless sea.

A string quartette playing for hire at a banquet.

They play all night [quite a party] for gold [pay] and they have separate scores [music].
