If you regularly travel
a route from ‘A’
To ‘A’ – a circular route, I think, do you see? –
And always take the clockwise way,
What would happen
If you travelled it in reverse – not walking backwards; but, the other way round? –
The massive hill that you had to climb
Right at the end,
Would disappear right round the bend
And that long arduous slope,
That you met half way round,
Would be a gentle stroll
And found to be an easier passage, upon the whole.
However, as you start and stop
At the same point
Then the altitude to climb
And the altitude to drop
Are still the same,
So that slopes once up, now down,
Will be balanced out by downwards slopes
Turning themselves the other way round.
So, apart from seeing the route from a pretty new angle;
There isn’t really a difference
That a mind can’t untangle.
Clockwise or Widdershins
(that’s ‘anti-clockwise’ in a far nicer way)
Whichever you go,
I have to say,
That I just thought I’d point out the above – so you’d know.
