Nah... I prefer the one by Ogden Nash. shorter, a littleless didactic: O Duty, Duty... Why hast thou not the visage of A sweetie or a cutie? Why glitter thy spectacles So ominously? And why art thou dressed So abominously? Why aren't thou different from Venus? And why do thou and I have so few interests mutually in common Between us? .... <G> That's all I can remember!
