Gummo

Gummo

Gummo Marx was always in the shadow of glasses and moustaches.
But then Groucho died days after Elvis and didn’t get a decent epitaph.
Elvis, meanwhile, longed for that twin of his, outdone by that Jesus guy who had the last laugh.
But alongside the three most famous people in history, this poem’s still about Gummo Marx.
