    I heard this on the BBC sports personality awards tonight and thought it worthy of a posting:

    by Edgar A. Guest

    Somebody said it couldn't be done.
    But he with a chuckle replied,
    That maybe it couldn't, but he would be one
    Who wouldn't say so 'till he'd tried.

    So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin
    On his face. If he worried, he hid it.
    He started to sing as he tackled the thing
    That couldn't be done. And he did.

    Somebody scoffed, "Oh, you'll never do that
    At least no one ever has done it."
    But he took off his coat, and he took off his hat,
    And the first thing we know, he'd begun it.

    With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
    Without any doubting or "quit-it".
    He started to sing as he tackled the thing
    That couldn't done. And he did it.

    There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done.
    There are thousands to prophesy failure.
    There are thousands to point out to you, one by one,
    The dangers that wait to assail you
    But just buckle in, with a bit of a grin;
    Just take off your coat and go to it.
    Just start to sing as your tackle the thing
    That cannot be done, and you'll do it!

    If this keeps up we'll have to start a rhyming thread.
