Keats & Yeats etc.



For all Will Shakespeare's thespianic feats
The greatest odes are still by Keats.
Among the Irish some contend
(Pay close attention to this my friend),
That the greatest of greats
Was their Nobel Poet W.B.Yeats.
So Yeats is Yeats and Keats is Keats,
And poems like poets trip by their feets.
And poets, like Markwick, have their day,
But like all gods they've feet of clay.
As for humility, that's for seniors
Not for those who are blessed with genius.
Some there are who think I'm king,
And if you believe that you'll beleive anything!
