About Ogden Nash

Here's a good rule of thumb

Too clever, is dumb.

Senescence begins and middle age ends,

The day your descendants outnumber your friends.

Here lies my past,

Goodbye I have kissed it;

Thank you kids,

I wouldn't have missed it.

"Frederic Ogden Nash (August 19, 1902 – May 19, 1971) was an American poet well known for his light verse. At the time of his death in 1971, the New York Times said his "droll verse with its unconventional rhymes made him the country's best-known producer of humorous poetry". Ogden Nash wrote over 500 pieces of comic verse. The best of his work was published in 14 volumes between 1931 and 1972."
