National Poetry Month (8/30): Great Gatsby in 5-7-5

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
(this one’s for an old friend)

The last line of this,
The “And so we beat on” part,
Makes me think of you.

    Ghastly bunch of clowns
    Prancing ever faster: yes,
    but why should I care?

    (GREAT one, Roger!) (I’m not a Fitzgerald fan, so bring on the criticism!)

  3. Liz Says:

    I can’t remember
    If I read the book, or just
    Looked at the movie
