The Lanyard

Billy Collins, former U.S. Poet Laureate, and so darn funny, reads his poem "The Lanyard."  When I read that Poetry awarded him the Mark Twain Prize for humor in poetry, it made sense.  I was trying to think of what Collins reminded me of and voila!  But of course!  The depth, the pathos, and the humor that Twain can wrap up in Huckleberry Finn is the kind of thing Collins can do.
