By Ogden Nash

Any hound a porcupine nudges

Can’t be blamed for harboring grudges.

I know one hound that laughed all winter

At a porcupine that sat on a splinter.

Grew out a mane,

And now he resembles a bear!

I wish that my room had a floor,

I don’t care so much for a door.

But this walking around

Without touching the ground

Is getting to be quite a bore.

The ocean’s spray

Washed it away,

All that was left was her blouse!
