Was it Kierkegaard or Dick Van Patten?

Homage to Soren Kierkegaard:

I was already an old man when I was born. 
Small with a curved back, he dragged his leg when walking
the streets of Copenhagen. "Little Kierkegaard,”
they called him. Some meant it kindly. The more one suffers
the more one acquires a sense of the comic. 
His hair rose in waves six inches above his head.
Save me, O God, from ever becoming sure. 
What good is faith if it is not irrational?

Dana Gioia.
