The Poetry Reading

de la Mare, did not care
and Cummings could not come
Auden sent his deep regrets
as did Betjeman.

Housman was a bit put out
by Yeats as absentee
who was with Thomas down the pub
drunk with Bukowski

so of my little soirée
is much best left unsaid
it serves me right I’m sad to say
for inviting just the dead.
