Thanks boys and girls, you helped me out with something: I had forgotten who of the forumites it was who had the poem 'Résumée' by Dorothee Parker in his profile:
Razors pain you;
Rivers are damp;
Acids stain you;
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful;
Gas smells awful;
You might as well live.
It was Anatomist.
This poem was also presented to us recently by the man I had suspected to be Hobgoblin in disguise - the teacher of the essay writing class - as an example how to clearly state facts without too many words ("wonderful New York pessimism... as you can see, Parker committed suicide" *evil grin*).
...One more Parker Poem... the
"General Review of the Sex Situation"
Woman wants monogamy;
Man delights in novelty;
Love is woman's moon and sun;
Man has other forms of fun.
Woman lives but in her lord;
Count to ten, and man is bored;
With this the gist and sum of it,
What earthly good can come of it?
