On Cheating The Fiddler

On Cheating The Fiddler

“Then we will have tonight!” we said.
“Tomorrow – may we not be dead?”
The morrow touched our eyes, and found
Us walking firm above the ground,
Our pulses quick, our blood alight.
Tomorrow’s gone – we’ll have tonight!



Poem On Cheating The Fiddler - Dorothy Parker
