    It is an excerpt from 'The Song of Hiawatha'.

    "What is it about?," you ask. It's about the worst excuse for a poem I've ever read, tbh. That's what it's about. 

    Leslie P. Hill, the author of this doggerel, was a talented writer of prose and drama and an important educator, but he should have left poetry to people who knew what they were doing.

    try breaking the poem into sections (after the periods is probably a good spot). 

    Try and rewrite each section in your own words, saying what you think it means. The thing about poetry is there can be more than one interperetation of it, and you have to find yours.
