            When one like Marlowe or Crane,

            Shelley or Keats has achieved

            His self-determined goals,

            Well, it is time to declare it 

            Done and make room for whoever

            Comes next.  Some of the rest

            Of us however aren't so sure.


            There are goals abounding

           And nights with witches rending

            Our hypotheses with sniggers,

            Dying away perhaps but

            Soon replaced to fend off

            The latest conclusions, the next

            Painting, poem or design.                          


            We rail at critics but were

            It not for them we might

            Think our slight efforts

            Worthy of places along

            Side Byron, Blake and Defoe,

            More insightful than anything

            By Wittgenstein and die.
