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
And why art thou dressed
Why aren't thou different from Venus?
And why do thou and I have so few interests mutually in common
That's all I can remember!
