Henry is old, old; for Henry remembers
Mr Deeds’ tuba, & the Cameo,
& the race in Ben Hur, â€”The Lost World, with sound,
& The Man from Blankey’s, which he did not dig,
Nor did he understand one caption of,
Bewildered Henry, while the Big Ones laughed.
Now Henry is unmistakably a Big One.
FÃºnnee; he don’t fÃ©el so.
He just stuck around.
The German & the Russian films into
Italian & Japanese films turned, while many
Were prevented from making it.
He wishing he could squirm again where Hoot
Is just ahead of rustlers, where William S
Forgoes some deep advantage, & moves on,
Where Hashknife Hartley having the matter taped
The rats are flying. For the rats
Have moved in, mostly, and this is for real.
