Ode to the Classics

Here's a bit of doggerel I wrote this afternoon while I was shelving in the classics section, using only those authors and titles on my cart at the time:

Kipling, Wilde, Abbott, Brontë,
Victor Hugo, Plato, Dante.
Common Sense by Thomas Paine,
Badge of Courage, Stephen Crane.

That's Edwin Abbott, by the way, author of Flatland.
