Question

Guest

There was once a man who made

A panic about an alien raid

If his name you want to know,

Make a wish—and pennies throw.

Next look for a man who yearned

To rival poet Bobby Burns

Yet that is not what he did best

For he was a great novelist.

Now must come a man who rushed

So fast, so far, that he was bushed

He did his best, and faithfully,

Whose wife once asked, “Did you marry me?”

In common these three have but little

But here I hope to find acquittal

To one who’s wise, they will spell out

The name this riddle writes about.

It depends on which one you mean. If you have the wrong one, you'll have trouble getting the rest of it. I'm too tired to make it hard.
