Benny Hill said never to assume, 
Never, never, never to assume
Anything at all, avoid the doom

That follows when you think you know it all,
When there's nothing you don't know at all,
Or so you think — you think that there is small

Chance that you'll be wrong, that you are wise
Beyond all others, for you have been a wise
Guy all your life and can't be otherwise

Than a prophet and a seer, a mage,
A major magus on a pilgrimage
To know it all, a mastermind and sage

Smarter than Benny Hill who thought that he
Was a lesser ASS than U or ME.
