At the Literary Ball

Eliot and Alighieri waltzed cantos ‘cross the floor

Dante’ clearly played the lead

his partner a well-coiffed bore

who never quite got to the deed


‘though T.S. showed little regret

A heated discussion ensued

an inferno regarding the steps

Fate reluctantly there to intrude


Austin and Brontes three

when asked would later agree

when the music did cease

Alfred’s frock showed no crease

while poet and sage, with the son

all went free

‘twas merely a gaff of divine comedy.
