(24 June 1842 - 26 December 1913 / Horse Cave Creek, Ohio)

Egotist

Megaceph, chosen to serve the State
In the halls of legislative debate,
One day with his credentials came
To the capitol's door and announced his name.
The doorkeeper looked, with a comical twist
Of the face, at the eminent egotist,
And said: 'Go away, for we settle here
All manner of questions, knotty and queer,
And we cannot have, when the speaker demands
To know how every member stands,
A man who to all things under the sky
Assents by eternally voting 'I.''

This is hilarious! Shame on the previous 55 voters who have only given this a 5.3 rating out of ten. Obviously they did not understand the terrific pun in the last line!
