Every time I’ve written a poem —
Starting to think it’s good —
Emily D — has already said it
better than I ever could —
If with the literate I am
Impelled to try an epigram,
I never seek to take the credit;
We all assume that Oscar said it.
— Dorothy Parker
I presume this is what you were referencing. And yes, Emily got there ahead of the rest of us.
No, I wasn’t alluding to that, but it’s the same feeling. Oscar Wilde, I guess she means. I’ve never seen that before. I probably should read more of Parker.
