Thanks to Desolation Row by Bob Dylan I Got Final Jeopardy Right Tonight

Warning - this song is 11 minutes long

I don't know much about poets and poetry, but that was the category on Final Jeopardy tonight.  The correct question "Who was T.S, Eliot?"  All three contestants got it wrong.  I really didn't know it but I ventured a guess based on Desolation Row by Bob Dylan.  Partial lyrics are below:

Praise be to Nero’s Neptune
The Titanic sails at dawn
And everybody’s shouting
“Which Side Are You On?”
And Ezra Pound and T. S. Eliot
Fighting in the captain’s tower
While calypso singers laugh at them
And fishermen hold flowers
Between the windows of the sea
Where lovely mermaids flow
And nobody has to think too much
About Desolation Row
