ER, it is the reverse version which is the equivalent of Om mani padme hum mantra of all inebriated beings. It is a certain proof that one is not inebriated 'enough' if one can sing the song entirely backwards.
If the kiwis are navel-gazing, they best do so very mindfully, lest they poke their beaks right through the middle & out the other side & will awake to find themselves feeling very deflated. No simple hangover, this.
Hi Croix and MK,
Thank you for your literary creation Croix. You are helping inspire me to create worster poems. MK, “engorge a gorge” is a fine ending. Yes, too much naval gazing from a kiwi could lead that long snoot of theirs to poke through to the other side.
There was a penguin named Clyde
Who liked to whiz down a slide
Over the igloo
And into the deep blue
Waking the walrus inside
