I said I would make a sequel to Madness, so I did! I’m not sure what I think of it, though, but neither do they, so it all balances out.
[Enter one thing and the other. A third joins them.]
One thing: Welcome, third!
The other: Third, very welcome!
A third: Indeed, third welcome.
One thing: But you were already welcomed.
The other: Twice welcomed, you were.
A third: But I welcome myself as well, you see. Safety first.
One thing: A most excellent point.
The other: But we haven’t.
A third: We really ought to at some point.
One thing: That’s the idea.
The other: But when?
One thing: Yes?
A third: Precisely.
The other: No, not me, just some.
A third: So, some other point, then?
One thing: No, at some point.
The other: But when should we?
One thing: I most say so.
A third: But not all, really.
One thing: No. That would be silly!
A third: We wouldn’t have time.
The other: Time for what?
A third: Not yet, but soon.
One thing: Well, you mustn’t be late.
The other: It’s an important date.
A third: A what?
The other: Quite.
A third: I hadn’t thought of that.
One thing: Nor had I.
The other: Had you what?
One thing: I’m not really sure.
A third: Sure of what?
One thing: Nope.
A third: Distressing, I’d say.
The other: But you just did.
A third: Did what?
One thing: No, you did.
The other: Whatever did he do?
A third: I’m not sure.
One thing: Who is?
The other: No, she isn’t.
A third: Really?
One thing: Shocking!
The other: What is?
One thing: I’d rather you not.
A third: It would be painful.
The other: Agreed. More tea?
A third: Certainly.
One thing: Certainly.
