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.
