Why Frank's it Isn't a This


"i imagine that yes is the only living thing."
— E.E. Cummings

Though sympathetic guys, they thought
it wise that Frank revise his stuff
he thought that all would highly prize
when Frank said it was good enough.

He said "no thanks" to helping him,
not wanting theirs instead of his,
and hoped to hear some passerby
say "Joe! Come here! Now look at This!

But no one really did, no Joe,
Tom, Dick, or Harry to be frank,
whenever they considered it
whose stare was nothing more than blank,

but being Frank he'd always miss
that Harry, Dick, and Tom admit
that with his I they'd be a This
while Frank alone just has an it.
