frindley commented on the word shavian
Observe this man: George Bernard Shaw.
His beard is long! It scrapes the floor!
It makes him look quite shrewd and grave -
(A Shavian, he never shaved.)
Though Fabian, he told no fables,
But told the truth whenever able.
A noted modern dramatist,
And famous epigrammatist,
He'd love to epi- me or you.
I'd like to epigram him too:
I can't. Alas! He is quite dead!
This is an epitaph instead.
