ERNEST HENRY'S LITTLE POEM 
ERNEST TITLED IT MERELY "TO BOTH OF YOU" (MEANING DRAGICA AND ME) FROM BOTH OF US (MEANING ERNEST AND WIFE, NADINE.) HERE IT IS:  
-------------------

Ed McBain
Looked to the sky
And cried, "God, give me a plot!"

"Ed, you're a pain,"
Came the celestial reply,
"Don't  you know Evan just took the lot!"

"I didn't know!"
Squealed The Ed in despair.
"He never let on -- not a clue!

"Serves you right,
You should learn how to share.
And which one of you is who?"

"I'm me!  I'm me!
Not him," said Ed.
And he punched himself hard in the head.

"Weird," said God
"Next time I've a plot,
I'll give it to Henry instead!"

                       Love,
                       Ernest
