Dorothy Parker

A Pig's-Eye View Of Literature

Dorothy Parker was an American poet, short story writer, critic and satirist, best known for her wit, wisecracks, and eye for 20th-century urban foibles.






The Lives and Times of John Keats,
  Percy Bysshe Shelley, and
 George Gordon Noel, Lord Byron

  Byron and Shelley and Keats
  Were a trio of Lyrical treats.
The forehead of Shelley was cluttered with curls,
And Keats never was a descendant of earls,
And Byron walked out with a number of girls,
But it didn't impair the poetical feats
  Of Byron and Shelley,
  Of Byron and Shelley,
Of Byron and Shelley and Keats.
