Of shoes -- and ships -- and sealing wax --
Of cabbages -- and kings --
And why the sea is boiling hot --
And whether pigs have wings.
Or, are the dead equally scared of being born; going for annual 'health'checks, taking out death insurances, rushing for emergency medical care when the presence of birth seems to loom large? On top of that, oh! the added shame.. that one was not considered fit enough to stay dead, but had to be sent back to learn more! For after all, the concept of Nirvana does seem to imply that only upon achieving true enlightenment does one earn the ultimate salvation, freedom from the land of the living.. from being alive.~N.
