    Mr.Nash delivers quite nicely
    making use of comedy and also being a bit ice-y
    He puts it down bluntly
    and some poems are quite stunt-ly

    81 person did not like.

    I liked couple of poems of Mr Nash which i read.

  • Julia Nicholls (4/24/2006 5:49:00 PM)

    Ogden Nash was quite funny
    Using words that were quite pun-ny
    Instead of writing poems that had no strife
    He could have gone out, and got himself a life

    I like his poem 'The Tale Of Custard The Dragon.' So cute!

    What a clever persona was Ogden Nash,
    Expounding his truth as well as his trash.
    Some works proffered wit,
    Some others pure grit,
    With most saturated in balderdash.

A Word To Husbands

To keep your marriage brimming
With love in the loving cup,
Whenever you’re wrong, admit it;
Whenever you’re right, shut up.

Old Men

People expect old men to die,
They do not really mourn old men.
Old men are different. People look
At them with eyes that wonder when…
People watch with unshocked eyes;
But the old men know when an old man dies.
