I used to be a banker, but then I lost interest.

I know for every pun I shed
I'll be severely punīshed;
Then I shall seek some puny shed
In which to lay my punish'd 'ead.


I'm immortal until proven otherwise

I once heard a wise observation
On how to improve education:
"If children have ardour,
They'll want to try harder –
They just need enough aspiration".

however, if that helps.
