Citing Bathroom Poetry

 I’m analyzing poetry for my ‘Punk Literature’ seminar. Using MLA style, how do I cite a limerick scribbled in the third-floor toilet?

This epigraph was taken from a recent article in the Chronicle of Higher Education arguing that professors need to get over their citation obsession. Instead of being driven by “plagiarism hysteria,” which emphasizes and punishes improper citation, the article points to research and recommendations by the Citation Project suggesting that professors should instead emphasize and reward student engagement with the use of words and ideas.
