Percy Dovetonsils is the nom de plume of Doug Lane, who laughed himself nearly to death when he first heard/saw Percy Dovetonsils lisping in his cravate on the old Ernie Kovacs Show. Doug Lane is alive and worrying about his credit card balances in Los Angeles, California. He some day hopes to grow himself a mustache as thin as Percy's. more »

Best Poem of Percy Dovetonsils

The United States Of Dreams

In my cramped world
I only find room
in my sleep.
I’m cornered
everywhere else.

If the U.S.
is Mexico’s safety valve,
the place where folks
who can’t take too much Mexico
escape,
then The United States of Dreams,
is my America,
and I creep across La Frontera
to the Land of Possibility
every night,
dodging the border partrol, the rattlers,
the heat, and the cars on the 5 Freeway,
in hopes of reaching Ho-wood
and becoming
gardener
to the stars.
