Point Less - Poem by Ima Ryma
Edgar Allen Poe was in fact,
Briefly, a cadet at West Point.
The parade dress rule was exact -
A rifle over shoulder joint,
And wearing belt and gloves, all white.
Accordingly, Poe was so dressed,
Presenting to the brass, a sight.
Poe's superiors were very stressed.
He was ordered before a board
To explain why he had rebelled.
Poe maintained he was in accord
With the dress rule. He was expelled.
Belt, gloves and rifle - whereupon,
Those things were all that Poe had on.
