    The moral is that it is probably better not to sin at all, but if
    some kind of sin you must be pursuing,
    Well, remember to do it by doing rather than by not doing.
    Ogden Nash (1902–1971)

    Belinda lived in a little white house,
    With a little black kitten and a little gray mouse,
    And a little yellow dog and a little red wagon,
    And a realio, trulio, little pet dragon.
    Ogden Nash (1902–1971)

    Children aren’t happy with nothing to ignore,
    And that’s what parents were created for.
