Two aged men were one day afoot
Along a river older than they.
They walked and talked
Discussing things of all array.

When one man brought up truth,
And the other passed away.

Into the river he fell
Which flowed straight into hell;
The first man was forever lost,
And the other continued about his day.

The author's comments:
Inspired by a movie called The Shepard; refers to the river of styx
