The phrase "Founding Fathers" exists to make me giggle
The flexing of pectorals in a dream
I've known some pretty dumb chess players in my life
Further proof that standardized tests mean nothing more
Than a nickel in someone's lonesome tip jar
The Queen's Indian Defense won't save you now
Mistaking a herd of sheep for an approaching army
You too will be trampled underfoot
Want to get smart? Get a loan
That alone won't be enough
You'll need a couple jobs too
This course of action is in both of our best inerests
Studies have found that everyone
Wins every now and again
Just remember, don't be a sheep.
It is right that he too should have his little chronicle, his memories,
his reason, and be able to recognize the good in the bad, the bad in the
worst, and so grow gently old all down the unchanging days and die one
day like any other day, only shorter.
-- Samuel Beckett, "Malone Dies"
