First Child ... Second Child Analysis

Author: poem of Ogden Nash Type: poem Views: 13

Be it a girl, or one of the boys,

It is scarlet all over its avoirdupois,

It is red, it is boiled; could the obstetrician

Have possibly been a lobstertrician?

His degrees and credentials were hunky-dory,

But how's for an infantile inventory?

Here's the prodigy, here's the miracle!

Whether its head is oval or spherical,

You rejoice to find it has only one,

Having dreaded a two-headed daughter or son;

Here's the phenomenon all complete,

It's got two hands, it's got two feet,

Only natural, but pleasing, because

For months you have dreamed of flippers or claws.

Furthermore, it is fully equipped:

Fingers and toes with nails are tipped;

It's even got eyes, and a mouth clear cut;

When the mouth comes open the eyes go shut,

When the eyes go shut, the breath is loosed

And the presence of lungs can be deduced.

Let the rockets flash and the cannon thunder,

This child is a marvel, a matchless wonder.

A staggering child, a child astounding,

Dazzling, diaperless, dumbfounding,

Stupendous, miraculous, unsurpassed,

A child to stagger and flabbergast,

Bright as a button, sharp as a thorn,

And the only perfect one ever born.


Arrived this evening at half-past nine.

Everybody is doing fine.

Is it a boy, or quite the reverse?

You can call in the morning and ask the nurse.
