Poem numero dos in honor of National Poetry Month celebrates Dorothy Parker!
I have included two short, but oh so poignant of Parker’s poems.
Men seldom make passes
At girls who wear glasses.
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.

Thanks! I thought her more popular poems would warm people up nicely.
I had never heard of Dorothy Parker but Résumé is a really excellent poem, thanks for sharing.
She’s great-to the point and forceful.
This is now on my refrigerator! Thanks for sharing!
Brevity is the sole of wit. Bravo, Dorothy!
