Summary Edit

The family pressures Will to enter an after-school program. Following the girls into a poetry class, he makes up a poem on the spot to impress them and claims it was written by a poet named Rafael de la Ghetto, a name he spontaneously came up with on the spot.

Impressed, Christina asks to bring him to Poetry Night and after Jazz doesn't come through with an impostor, Will turns to Geoffrey to masquerade.
