young William Carlos Williams
To a Friend
by William Carlos Williams
[from Sour Grapes (1921)]

Well, Lizzie Anderson! seventeen men–and
the baby hard to find a father for!

What will the good Father in Heaven say
to the local judge if he do not solve this problem?
A little two pointed smile and–pouff!–
the law is changed into a mouthful of phrases.
