Truman Capote

~

Another book finished,
A much smarter man;

Reading the first part,
Then jumping to end.

Truman Capote,
That’s how he would wend

Through hundreds of good books,
If not a thousand.

~
And when he had finished
He claimed that he knew

All of the writings
Of writers – He knew!

Not a close reading,
But quick read, for sure.

And in time remaining,
He’d read ‘em once more!

~
Truman Capote,
A very smart man;

But where did it get him?
– Like us, in the end.
