The Tyger, by William Blake
Tiger, tiger burning bright
in the forest of the night
I think that it was pretty mean
to soak his fur in kerosene.
The Purple Cow, by Gilett Burgess
I never saw a purple cow
though it might be endearing
But, if I see one anyhow
it’s genetic engineering.
The Raven, by Edgar Allen Poe
Once upon a midnight dreary
while I pondered weak and weary
on a bust of Pallus, a raven posed
O’ why can’t I keep that window closed?
