On using highfalutin allusions:

Pity the wannabe-peach-eating dodderer,
over-invoked by the Eliot utterer,
shiny pate famously fated for better or
worse to be polished by scholar and tutor a-
like in the verse that he's cursed to be fodder fer.

Another highfalutin allusion:

Imagine how weird it'd be to be Leda;
far better that she's the one shagged than the reader!
A Trojan too late, who'da reckoned that she'da
got humans from Zeus, who proceeded to breed her?
Though Helen, I've heard, would eat seeds from a feeder.
