Charles Dickens

I’ve had a lot of heroines
And heroes, that’s for sure:
But I think I will mention one
Who will, no doubt, endure

For Charles Dickens is one such
Although it’s strange to say:
His view of life’s now quite antique
And certainly passé

But yet I find among his words
And stories something true:
The good and ugly in this life
Are mixed up
Through
And through

(this.)
