Ogden Nash

THE ASP

Whenever I behold an asp
I can't suppress a prudish gasp.
I do not charge the asp with matricide,
But what about Cleopatricide?

(from Versus, 1949)

Ahhh. Light verse. In my sheltered little existence, I've never read Ogden Nash. How fun.

After having my stoning poem reviewed by our class (twice) and getting the finishing touches done, I've decided I detest it. It says too little, and in a voice I don't like. Curious.

Blessings for your day, Linera.

Well, I must be having mood swings or something. After reading your encouragement I thought of a few things to do, what it was I detested and how to fix it. There was concern in class it was too accusing since I chose the examine the consciousness of the stone thrower.
