If Edward Lear's, silly,
Shakespeare gives you the willies,
George Orwell, prophetic,
Hemingway, earnest, pathetic,
Scott Fitzgerald, don't fit,
Steinbeck, many a mousy bit,
Rabbie's too much thistle,
Though Virginia's worth a whistle.
The Brontes are wuthering,
Lewis's wardrobe needs smothering,
Tolkein's a ringer,
Oscar - wild singer,
Edgar Allan's gone potty,
Sayers is dotty,
Tolstoy's a lion,
Twain, keep both eyes on!
Their cause is worth pleading,
They are worth second reading.
These favoured dogmatics
Have penned some great classics.
