Birthday Greetings

Alfred, Lord Tennyson, 203 today.  The following is offered for purposes of euphony only, and not as evidence of the truth thereof:

Should Heaven send me any son,
I hope he's not like Tennyson.
I'd rather have him play a fiddle
Than rise and bow and speak an idyll.
--Dorothy Parker

For euphonic comparison only, my own favorite Dorothy Parker:

Hogamous HIgamous
Men are polygamous
Higamous Hogamous
Women monogamous

Crankily yours,
The New York Crank
