Criticizing The Poet

Portrait of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Criticizing The Poet

An odd sigh, he's nuts,
actually loopy, no?
And what will we do
with him, I ask you?
If you go at him with nets
he will drop away,
sink right through the floor,
thumb his nose wart as he goes.

I confess I would
behave just like that
if I had his nose for hope
and thought I could get
away with things like
he does, that fat old bastard!
Think what he once was.

This poem is NOT about Henry! :D Think of someone else this poem could be about. I just added Henry's portrait for effect.


  1. Loved the poem, but I'm sure I couldn't possibly think of anyone to whom this ode would apply. :)


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
