I don’t know much about poetry. I used to read the stuff Bukowski wrote when he was drunk and I know a couple of dirty limericks, but I don’t read a lot of poetry. But I like this. It’s by Phyllis McGinley, and it was posted by CNN’s Jake Tapper on Twitter (I posted it in my Saturday Evening Post column last month). I was reading a book of McGinley’s essays and did a little research on her since I wasn’t familiar with her work. I discovered she won the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 1961 and wrote several children’s books. She wrote the book the animated special The Year Without A Santa Claus (I’m Mister Heater Miser…) is based on.
