It's not used much now...

We can't be quixotic still.

"Learn languages? Ha!"


No patience for that.

Ideal? Yes. Impractical.

"Give me something now!"


Seven fifty's small.

Move on to manage...make more.

"Too low for me! Nuts!"


Sausage, bratwurst too.

Oscar Mayer showed us how.

"Hot dog!" he exclaimed.


"No meat market. No!"

2.5 billion bucks sales!

"Whatever" youth drawls.


You've got to start now.

"Maybe tomorrow," he says.

Yeah, maybe one day.


Impractical, sure,

By today's standard ideals.

At least an ideal.
