Comments about Terence, This Is Stupid Stuff by Alfred Edward Housman

    While this is my favorite poem, I still disagree with the second narrator of this poem that there is much less good than ill. I have a more upbeat view on the world than Housman did.

    A few mistypes in this poem, but well enough.

    Ah, yes, the power of positive drinking.
    Way too much competition for our humble verse.
