When A Young Man Whose Name is Hurd

When a young man whose name is Hurd
Said, “poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the word”,
A girl called Nelly
Replied, “so said Shelley,
But the last word, you’ve got that wrong Hurd!”.

(the correct quotation is, of course “poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world”).
