Humurous poem about past poets at a dance

There once was thrown a poets ball that ghosts of poets threw

Shakespeare wore his fancy pants, and Whitman wore his too

Ovid wore a nice new toga, Keats was busy doing Yoga

Byron was a dance floor king, Catullus just drank everything.

Shelley did the Jitterbug with Edgar Allan Poe

Yeats's head began to spin, he thought he'd better go

Oscar Wilde did Twist and Shout, Wordsworth smoked and got threw out

Austen sipped a Chardonnay, Kipling didn't want to stay.

So when the clock hit 3am,and all were worse for wear

Their time had come now once again, and all went 'poof' into thin air.
