What is this?[edit]

What is this poem? There is no date, no source, and the author does not seem known. I'm suspicious that this is an amateur poem rather than something of any note. Should it be deleted? --Midnightdreary (talk) 02:03, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

I'm insulted you would even mention the word "delete" without consulting the person who first put the poem online! Harumph! Anyways, it comes from the 1909 Lonesome Bar and Other Poems which I put online during my employment with the Internet Archive.

Wow, sorry for daring to suggest we look into the provenance of a poem! You'll note that I made absolutely no action whatsoever towards getting this entry deleted. I'm flabbergasted you would not consider starting a discussion on the discussion page a sign of good faith. --Midnightdreary (talk)
