India Uncut Nugget 2

As I was going up the stair
I met a man who wasn't there
He wasn't there again today
I wish, I wish, he'd go away
"Antigonish", by Hughes Mearns.

Note: I'd originally mistakenly picked up from somewhere that this ditty was by John Donne. My mistake. Sorry. J Alfred Prufrock 2 kindly sent me an email pointing out my mistake, as well as another ditty by Mearns:
As I was sitting in my chair,
I knew the bottom wasn't there,
Nor legs nor back, but I just sat,
Ignoring little things like that.
