O! If I were a fish
I'd lay hap'ly on my dish.
Yes, that's my one and only wish --

They needn't flush after they pish!
Yes, and life's just swish, swish, swish,

To have a giant's strength; but it is tyrannous
To use it like a giant.

To grasp this sorry scheme of things entire,
Might we not smash it to bits
And mould it closer to our hearts' desire?

look where they are not rather than where they are.
