    We have Johnny, Donna, and a wolverine.

    A wolverine is also referred to as the glutton and the skunk bear.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolverine
    A wolverine, a skunk bear, is a gourmand.
    And a gourmand is a pleasure-seeker. A Don Juan.
    https://www.classicthesaurus.com/gourmand

    The name Donna is equivalent to Don, for men.
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donna_(given_name)
    Juan means John.

    So, we have Donna and Johnny = Don Juan.
    And, Don Juan = gourmand = glutton = wolverine.
    Coincidence ?
    ========================================

    "American Indian myths about transformations from human to animal abound.
    Those studies (and rites and rituals of indigenous people described in those studies) became prominent in pop culture, partly because of the writings of Carlos Castaneda.
    Castaneda was an anthropologist-turned-author who turned into one of the leading voices of the sixties' counterculture after he penned his Don Juan series.
    Wolverine the superhero was born into the era that Castaneda nurtured."

    Johnny and Donna were in the right spot at the right time.
    Well, that would mean that the wolverine was also in the right spot at the right time.

    Johnny and Donna = Don Juan
    Wolverine = Don Juan.
    Don Juan was in the right spot.

    A Don Juan, is a player. A chaser.

    A chaser was in the right spot.

    Don Juan was a Libertine .
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libertine

    Libertine is associated with Hellfire Club whose jokingly leader was the "Devil".
    But more importantly was a place where Elites and Political figures went to act immorally (like an animal).

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hellfire_Club
    " The club was more a joke, meant to shock the outside world, than a serious attack on religion or morality. The supposed president of this club was the Devil, although the members themselves did not apparently worship demons or the Devil, but called themselves devils.[16] Wharton's club admitted men and women as equals, unlike other clubs of the time. "

    A place where a person could actually dance with a devil. HMMM

            experience something very rare
            a very exciting discovery
            an incredible experience
            too rare to even consider happening by chance alone
            ------------------------------------------------------------------

            experience something very extreme
            see something exotic
            see something remarkable
            witness something awe-filling
            witness something unexpected

                The definition from Century Dictionary says, “To see or to show the elephant, to see or exhibit something strange or wonderful, especially to see it for the first time.”

                    Although the tone is dismal, Coon is still writing of the elephant not as a consequence but as a consolation or benefit of an unfortunate happenstance; in her case it was bad weather.
                    Interesting as this quote includes Tarry.

                        On the turning away
                        From the pale and downtrodden
                        And the words they say
                        Which we won't understand

                        "Don't accept that what's happening
                        Is just a case of others' suffering
                        Or you'll find that you're joining in
                        The turning away"

                        It's a sin that somehow
                        Light is changing to shadow
                        And casting it's shroud
                        Over all we have known

                        Unaware how the ranks have grown
                        Driven on by a heart of stone
                        We could find that we're all alone
                        In the dream of the proud

                        On the wings of the night
                        As the daytime is stirring
                        Where the speechless unite
                        In a silent accord

                        Using words you will find are strange
                        And mesmerized as they light the flame
                        Feel the new wind of change
                        On the wings of the night

                        No more turning away
                        From the weak and the weary
                        No more turning away
                        From the coldness inside

                        Just a world that we all must share
                        It's not enough just to stand and stare
                        Is it only a dream that there'll be
                        No more turning away?

                        • I've read more than several comments from over the years wherein the author suggests that there is a twist at the end of a correct solution.
                          Has anyone here found a spot in the poem where the twist occurs ?

                          I'm not fishing for clues. Anyone familiar with me would know that's not my style.
                          I know of a place in the poem, where I see a twist taking place.
                          And the clever thing about it, is that it is straightforward.
                          Anyone else ?

                          • It would be so easy to post a link to someone dancing to "The Twist" but I'm not going to do that.

                            Question: if you were a genius (at marketing and selling) and decided to make a puzzle that took 15 years to create, would that puzzle be 100% straight forward? Straight forward for one mind may mean incredibly difficult (twists) for another. (Backward Bicycles are diffficult to ride.)
                            In my opinion.

                              I've found a twist. However, I'm struggling with the ending.

                              • ⅓ is .33
                                33 is Newton’s point of boiling. A raging flow.
                                Hes mentioned luck 2 times. In Gadi SB and now.
                                He has also said- “you can’t make this stuff up”
                                its obvious there’s a twist, since we know he describes Oliver Twist as the pickpocket in TTOTC.
                                Ive seen the twist. It’s pretty special, like from a movie.
                                I’ll also say that Taylor Swift is important to the solve.
