Here's A List - Poem by Raymond Farrell

Here's my list
Of authors
Who got overlooked
And were not
Given the Nobel prize
In literature
When you read the list
Bear in mind
A committee
Decides who gets
The prize
And as someone has said
A camel is a horse
Designed by a committee
Now the list:
James Joyce, Marce Proust, Vladimir Nabokov, Philip Roth,
Anton Chektov, Jorge Luis Borges.Leo Tolstoy, Ezra Pound,
Mark Twain, Robert Frost, Henrik Ibsen, Emile Zola,
D.H. Lawrence, W. H. Auden.
