Too Much for Any Body

Algernon Swift laments the physicality of human life.

“Everywhere I go, it’s the same. People knuckle down and shoulder their responsibilities. They make a fist of it. They toe the line and foot the bill and hand over cash. Some try backing out. Some leg it. They get things off their chests, they make a clean breast of it. What’s worse is when they start necking and head for the bedroom ...”

“But why do you have to go on about it so?” exclaims exasperated Reverend Hawker.

“Because I mind,” says Swift. “I MIND!”
