It Wasn't A Classic Yet

Newly released, T.S. Eliot, employed as a book editor, rejecting Orwell's Animal Farm:
Your pigs are far more intelligent than the other animals, and therefore are the best qualified to run the farm - in fact there couldn't have been an Animal Farm without them: so that what was needed (someone might argue) was not more communism but more public-spirited pigs.
Eliot believed the elite
should stand upon 2 feet
and dole out rules
to furry fools.
