Charlie Chaplin Impersonates a Poet - Poem by Cornelius Eady
The stage is set for imminent disaster.
Here is the little tramp, standing
On a stack of books in order
To reach the microphone, the
Poet he's impersonating somehow
Trussed and mumbling in a
Tweed bundle at his feet.
He opens his mouth: Tra-la!
Out comes doves, incandescent bulbs,
Plastic roses. Well, that's that,
Squirms the young professor who's
No more visiting poets!
His department head groans
For the trap door. As it
The tramp keeps on as if
Nothing has occurred,
A free arm mimicking
