This Is How Poets Play

You stand here looking like Thoreau, acting like Whitman,
And behaving like Frost!
And then expect me to not act like Millay?
Go find Poe and Dickinson, call up Tennyson
Here we go – this is poet’s play!
And then round up Shakespeare, Kipling, Nash, and Guest!
And put all this nonsense to rest!
