  2. “Oh, I could climb the very highest Himalayas;
    Be among the greatest ever tennis players;
    Win at chess, or marry a princess, or
    Study hard and be an eminent professor;
    I could be a millionaire;
    Play the clarinet, travel everywhere;
    Learn to cook; catch a crook;
    Win a war and write a book about it;
    I could paint the Mona Lisa;
    I could be another Caesar;
    Compose an oratorio that was sublime:
    The door’s not shut on my genius, but
    I just don’t have the time…”
    – Flanders & Swann, “The Sloth” [email protected]=Q
