Was Houdini the greatest,
Or do we all surpass him,
as escape artists?

Is a five lever lock
any tougher to break
Than the vice-like grip
of tedium?

Perhaps we all have a little bit of greatness within us, but not his courage to try and break free.

Lovely little poem.

@Vidya: The magnitude of the task and the frequency with which you attempt it defines greatness. You do it often enough, you trump Houdini.
