    Candy
    Is dandy
    But Liquor
    Is quicker.
    Ogden Nash (1902–1971)

    Your hair may be brushed, but your mind’s untidy,
    You’ve had about seven hours’ sleep since Friday,
    No wonder you feel that lost sensation;
    You’re sunk from a riot of relaxation.
    —Ogden Nash (1902–1971)
