Dim and Jim after a deal
Went to a big hole to steal
A big sack packed with treasures
Which were nothing but pleasures

Elder Dim thought himself
And thought Jim a kid to rise
"Climb dwn the rope", Dim proposed
"Why not do that!", Jim opposed

But after a fight of hope
Jim was let in with a rope
Down the hole to find the sack
And tie it to the rope black

The sack was soon found and tied
Then from the hole Jim just cried
"You can now put the sack out
While I wait in dark. You tout!"

Taking up the sack, Dim laughed
He soon got huge rocks and coughed
Instead of ropes he threw rocks
Till the hole was filled with blocks

"Death has killed him now", he woed
"But where is my sack?", he booed
All he saw was a bare ground
Which was plain without a mound

But who could that great thief be?
Oh! It's Jim and not a bee;
Head of the Liars' Kingdom
Who had deceived Dim's wisdom

When the sack was pulled by Dim
The person therein was Jim
He had took the sack away
When Dim's mind was led astray

When Jim came to a corner
He searched the sack for silver
But he found crabs amidst stones
Which stung him deep to the bones

From afar Dim heard Jim scream
And he ran and grabbed his dream
But found a snake amidst sand
Which bit him tight on his hand

Such it is, but that is life
Where men for nothing do strife
Who for all sake are not wise.
Life is the fool's paradise!
