Horatio - Poem by Stanley Cooper

Stories for children brought him much fame
His first name’s more famous, then his famous surname
Alger, not as regal, seemed far less suited
So Horatio, for Alger his fans substituted

Stories of unknown youths filled most of his pages
They performed acts of valor, did these young sages
They rescued those damsels, in need of great heroes
And reduced all the villains to villainous zeros

A Shakespeare or Milton he was not, not nearly
The greatness of them escaped him most clearly
Yet he’s deserving of writing acclaim
This Horatio guy, with his Alger surname
