Owed To Ogden

Ogden Nash wrote balderdash,
Like little nursery rhymes.
Candies dandy; liquors quicker
Was one of his best lines.

My college professor, under pressure,
Said he pitied Ogden Nash.
Called him a would be poet.
Said he wrote only trash.

Though widely read, Ogden is dead,
But his name and works live on,
While old professor what’s his name
Is completely dead and gone.
