Extra Pound Shuffles Off

Extra's Sorry Excuse
Pound at the butt end of his days and ways
told Ginsberg that his insane howling craze
against the Jews
were stupid views,
and his whole life had been that long, wrong phrase.

This will wrap up the story of Extra Pound, when I get there, but meantime is the time to fill in for now. Oh, and in case you didn't know, Ezra Pound really did say something of the sort to Allen Ginsberg, in 1967, I believe, so this part's historical.

Also, the "butt end of his days and ways" is another allusion. Your guess . . .
