Friday Poetry Prompt

poetry prompt: death and taxes  


Poet and writer Dorothy Parker has a collection of poems titled “Death and Taxes” One of my favorite poems from that collection is “Summary”:

by Dorothy Parker

Every love’s the love before
In a duller dress.
That’s the measure of my lore-
Here’s my bitterness:
Would I knew a little more,
Or very much less

This is a GREAT movie about Dorothy Parker (it’s actually just a short trailer):
