One night, American philosopher William James sat up in bed and wrote this poem:
Men are polygamous
Which is funny, because one day several decades later American poet Dorothy Parker wrote:
Men are polygamous
So who really wrote this hogamous higamous polygamous monogamous poem? The eponymous William James or the eponymous Dorothy Parker? Or was the poem synonymous? Did they both write it? Or did no-one really write it, thus making its authorship anonymous? Was it just, kind of, you know, out there?
Some poets are eponymous
Some are synonymous
And then some are anonymous
While others are just plain ignominious.
Let's hope that whoever writes the poem, however they write it, whenever they write it, and whatever the poem that they write is, does a good job of it - because if not it would be an abomination. And that would be abominous.
Straights are monotonous.
Gays are lobotomous.
