Very humorous poem. I laughed, I cried. I was amazed by the insight of poor Professor Twist--even though in deep despair over the untimely demise of his wife, he still held education as his higher calling and carefully corrected and educated his ignorant guide.

So much conveyed in so few words. Great poem. I first heard it from my dad several years ago. It's now committed to memory. Pretty classy for a guy like me, whose poetry is generally limited to disgusting limericks.
