(Parodist at Large)
|HEN I AM OLD I shall wear a beard
With preferentially a Hawaiian shirt
Overloud in flowering hybiscus
And I will speak with my grandchildren
With the authority of an Old Testament prophet
And the generosity of Santa Claus.
I will count Hemingway my favorite author
He shall share the shelf with Longfellow, Tennyson and Dostoyevsky
And the Misopogon of Julian the Apostate.
And I will buy their books with fifties and fives.
