You Don’t Even Have to Paraglide On Your Towel

I see where you would think
That there would be a link
Between falling down
And then hitting the ground

But what if I told you
A piece of advice that’s probably true
The secret to be able to fly and not hurt
Is to fall and miss the dirt

Douglas Adams says
That if you see (hopefully in high res)
Something quite distracting
And hopefully light refracting

You’ll be far more likely
To fly and become rightly
Soaring, flipping and diving
Because you missed and will not be writhing

In pain on the earth or in a well
And now have a story to tell
So remember all who will read this
To fly, you fall and then you miss
