  9. 9. I Keep six honest serving-men: (They taught me all I knew) Their names are What and Where and When And How and Why and Who. I send them over land and sea, I send them east and west; But after they have worked for me, I give them all a rest. I let them rest from nine till five. For I am busy then, As well as breakfast, lunch, and tea, For they are hungry men: But different folk have different views: I know a person small-- She keeps ten million serving-men, Who get no rest at all! She sends em abroad on her own affairs, From the second she opens her eyes-- One million Hows, two million Wheres, And seven million Whys! Rudyard Kipling "The Elephant Child"
