Well versed

The Walrus - - FRONT PAGE -

I im­mensely en­joyed Richard Greene’s poem (“Can­ni­bal Rats,” Novem­ber) for two rea­sons. First, I ac­tu­ally un­der­stood what he was writ­ing about, be­cause the Lyubov Orlova —the aban­doned cruise ship that was drift­ing across the North At­lantic, al­legedly filled with rats—was once moored not far from my doorstep in New­found­land. And sec­ond, the au­thor had the au­dac­ity to use rhyme.
