The Educated - Poem by jan oskar hansen

The Educated.

Salient and Iconic are academic brothers,
appear often in a
“Literary Supplement Magazine, ”
lately they have been investigating
whether the wife of a famous writer
had syphilis or not.

Drew no firm conclusion,
only innuendos, which is a pity
if not very scholarly.
Wouldn’t it be erudite, when at
a dinner party, to say: ”
Did you know that Henrietta died of VD? ”
