Parody (attempt #1) – When I Heard the Learned Economist

When I Heard the Learned Economist

A parody by Claudio D. Shikida , 1969.

When I heard the Ph.D. economist,

When the proofs, the equations, were arranged on the blackboard before me,

When it was shown me the supply and demand curves to play with,

and to solve,

When I sitting heard the economist where he lectured

with too much silence in the lecture-room,

How soon unaccountable I became happy and curious,

Till reaching the magic pair smoothly calculated by myself,

Using the very same old pen, and from note to note,

I found out where my equilibrium was.

From the original:

When I Heard the Learned Astronomer

Walt Whitman, 1819 – 1892

When I heard the learn’d astronomer,

When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me,

When I was shown the charts and diagrams, to add, divide,

and measure them,

When I sitting heard the astronomer where he lectured with

much applause in the lecture-room,

How soon unaccountable I became tired and sick,

Till rising and gliding out I wander’d off by myself,

In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,

Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars.
