Flitting about

He’s always been a dilettante
Flitting round a world of fun
Achievements really rather scanty
Never seems to get things done
  When once we caught him “in flagrante”
  Playing games just meant for one
  Dressed in bra and frilly panty
  Never seems to get things done
A sort of intellectual ant, he
Has a  brain that’s like a bun
He’d much prefer to gallivant, he
Never seems to get things done
  He’s always been a dilettante
  Never seems to get things done
