Lady of the Round Table


On this date in nineteen hundred and sixty seven
Dorothy Parker made her ascent to heaven ...
After a life of writing her own work and critiquing others
The Lady of the Algonquin Round Table sunk under cover

Bringing to an end her version of stories filled with caustic wit
And critical essays on books and plays she chose to hit
Whether written for Vanity Fair or for The New Yorker
Dorothy Parker's critiques left nobody any smarter ...

- Tristram
