UNSKILLED I AM and that's no lie...
I have lost more skills in the blink of an eye:
Once I skiied and stood on my head;
And, I am told, a body of students led...but
Now I choose to read in bed.

Once I had pride in onomatopoesis;
The interest then switched to electrophoresis...
Which I gave up with "professions are a 'bitch'...
I'd rather just go dig a ditch"...
(Or drive a truck...
If I'm having a run of luck...
Or selling books, or paving roads,
Or hammering nails, or lifting bales...)

It really does not matter, as long as I do my best:
"Good enough for government work" is not
The ultimate test.
