Big Old World

Yesterday my colleague entertained us with the following oral recitation. It's apparently from Fritz the Cat, though I'd never heard it before. He did it well, and we were inspired to stand and applaud.

I've been up and down the four
corners of this big old world.
I've seen it all!
I've done it all!
I've fought many a good man,
laid many a good woman.
I've had riches and fame
and adventure.
Stood face to face with danger
and death countless times.
I've tasted life
to the fullest...
and still my soul cries out...
in this hungry, tortured,
wrecked quest, "More!"
