Gertrude Stein

Pity Pittsburg Pennsylvania

claims Gertrude, rather than Philadelphia.

If the latter then Gertrude Stein

would have been a real Philistine.

Instead we must assert that Gert

emerged with her battling wits from the Pitts.

I’m not at all sure who this poem is trying to imitate – not Gertrude Stein for sure (and apologies to her shade).
