How many miles to greyhair?
71
How will I know when I've arrived?
When your journey's done.
What will I find when I get there?
A bed. A yard of ale.
Are you certain that I will end there?
Keep counting. You cannot fail.

Carol Ann Duffy

If I've SEVENTY-ONE tonnes of metals,
And I've SEVENTY-ONE tonnes of petals,
Which lot weighs less?
Take your time, don't just guess
Give the question a good chance to settle
