Mirror of Fashion.
Admiral of Finance.
Don’t, in a passion.
Denounce this poor Romance;
For, while I dare not hope it might
Perhaps it will, some rainy night.
So, your attention.
In poetry polite.
To my invention
I bashfully invite.
Don’t hurl the book at Eddie’s head
Or Messmore’s; you might hit instead
Kahn among Canners.
And Grand Vizier of style.
Emir of Manners.
Accept — and place on file —
This tribute, which I proffer while
And honor with thy matchless Smile
R. W. C.
