George Ade (1866-1944 / the United States)
Comments about George Ade
From out a canon in the West I came with colors flying,
To meet the people known as ' best,' or strain myself while trying;
I know I'm handicapped by fate, and shy on social training,
Though I got off a trifle late, I'm going some and gaining.
Jo-ann of Arc once set a mark that caused a lot of talk,
But give me room to start a boom, I'll beat her in a walk.
A woman who is nifty, who is up to date and shifty,
Can start the game at fifty, with millions at her call.
