Dorothy Parker

(22 August 1893 - 7 June 1967 / Long Branch / New Jersey)

Observation


If I don't drive around the park,
I'm pretty sure to make my mark.
If I'm in bed each night by ten,
I may get back my looks again,
If I abstain from fun and such,
I'll probably amount to much,
But I shall stay the way I am,
Because I do not give a damn.

    If your familiar with her other works than this is the kind of poem that seems inevitable for her to have written. Still that takes nothing away form its cleverness. (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
