To Smiling Virtue

Higgledy-piggledy,
     Humean Timothy
     sat in his postered-up
     dorm-room at Yale.
"Ethics I've jettisoned
     semiempirically:
     all of my morals are
     empty and stale!"


Hanthony-panthony,
     Kantian Anthony
     sold off his clothing and
     made himself poor.
"Though I can't stomach this,
     still I'll press on with it,
     disinteréstedly
     helping Darfur."


Hemily-pemily,
     good-hearted Emily
     dog-eared the Ethics in
     laughing dismay.
"Who ever thought to write
     Peripatetically?
     Julia's sick, so I'd
     better not stay."
