Mae Scanlan: Dorothy Parker Takes Omar To Heart

Pray harken to
That tolling bell;
It’s telling you
Live fast, live well.
Be you a prole
Or upper crust,
Your final role
Is, simply, dust.
Let’s laugh and sing
Before we leave;
Let everything
Be joie de vivre.
And so, if you
Are feeling randy,
Well, whoop de doo!
My number’s handy.
