Dorothy Parker

On Cheating The Fiddler

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.






"Then we will have tonight!" we said.
  "Tomorrow- may we not be dead?"
The morrow touched our eyes, and found
  Us walking firm above the ground,
Our pulses quick, our blood alight.
  Tomorrow's gone- we'll have tonight!
