Who Wins At Monopoly: Walt Whitman or Emily Dickinson?
Because she would not leave her rooms
for food from Mickey D's.
Nor would she likely seek to get
a gamepiece mailed for free
Miss Dickinson ne'er once did play,
enjoy, or even see
a board, a piece, an instant win
from Mac's "Monopoly".
But since Walt Whitman strolled about
with journalistic ease—
to SuperSize his Diet Coke
and fries whene'er he pleased,
Old Walt was free to play the game—
he did, and lo! he won!
And thus did Walt defeat the Em—
we know as Dickinson.
