Supposedly, Darwin’s favorite slogan
Was, “it’s dogged as does it.” Alright, fine.
If you want to accomplish something great,
Then doggedness makes an excellent trait.
But if you want to achieve something small,
Doggedness will just cause indigestion.
(Darwin’s own guts never left him alone.
His bowels often kept him trapped at home.)
Content with seeking contentment, I find
Dawdling beats dogged for calming the mind.
