REGINALD SUMMERSWORTH III

Merrily, Merrily, shall I live now,
life is a dream.

Kittens, kittens, about town
about town
I’m a man
something like that
near 17.
strange age
very transitional stage
between child
adult
man
woMAN

skin a cat,
wear it on my head.
furs are in.
the year is 1926.
my name is Reginald Summersworth III,
at your service.

extravagance
refinement
eloquence
these are my traits.
I gamble
shoot
ride the train,
ride it for fun.

Glad to have made your acquaintance.

This is a poem I wrote about my alter ego. I wrote it in my english class, and the assignment was to borrow a line from another poem and start the poem with it. I started out with a line from Bill Shakespeare and let the pen flow from there.
