Question of the Day

Let’s get away from the politics and stuff for a moment…

Who is your favorite poet, and do you have a favorite poem?

I am one of those people who studied a lot of poetry and even tried my hand at it, but, like with the piano, never really mastered it. So I go for the light-hearted verse rather than the deep, and my favorite poet is Ogden Nash. And to be completely contrary, my favorite poem is Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll.

By the way, I’ve written a few limericks, but as is the case with most limericks, they are not suitable for publication without a plain brown wrapper.
