Such Flattery! - Poem by Edward Iacona

Edward Iacona

“Why do you write in poetry form? ”
Came this harmless inquisition
The answer is quite simple you see,
I dislike writing long exposition

“I really like the things you write,
They are thoughtful with wit and panache.
You remind me another writer I like,
Have you heard of Ogden Nash? ”

What incredible company I shared as
I Smiled at this complimentary gem.
Then sighing at Ogden’s grave reaction
He would be revolving at many R.P.M.
