Comment: Remember this exchange in Aristophanes‘ comedy The Frogs – Question: What do you expect a poet to do? Answer: Why, save the nation, of course! We won’t be putting that much pressure on the Whittier teams, thankfully. It would be easy to go the cheap joke route and say something like “What’s the matter? Was the nickname The Ballet Dancers already taken?” But I actually think poets are pretty cool – just ask Francois Villon!
