All Hail the … whatever

by Ken Arnold on Wed 24 July 2013

A morning dose of, well, whatever this is (originally from Jef Poskanzer):

This royal womb of kings, this sceptred sac,
This home of majesty, this cave of Venus,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for myself
Against infection and the outside world,
This happy home for me, this little world,
This precious uterus set in the reddish sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier fetuses,—
This blessed cervix, this vagina, this forceps, this England.

If’n y’all miss the reference
