Bohemia by Dorothy Parker

Authors and actors and artists and such

Never know nothing, and never know much

Sculptors and singers and those of their kidney

Tell their affairs from Seattle to Sidney

Playwrights and poets and such horses’ necks

Start off from anywhere, end up at sex.

Diarists, critics, and similar roe

Never say nothing, and never say no.

People Who Do Things exceed my endurance;

God, for a man that solicits insurance!
