Parable For A Certain Virgin Analysis

Author: poem of Dorothy Parker Type: poem Views: 8

Oh, ponder, friend, the porcupine;

  Refresh your recollection,

And sit a moment, to define

  His means of self-protection.

How truly fortified is he!

  Where is the beast his double

In forethought of emergency

  And readiness for trouble?

Recall his figure, and his shade-

  How deftly planned and clearly

For slithering through the dappled glade

  Unseen, or pretty nearly.

Yet should an alien eye discern

  His presence in the woodland,

How little has he left to learn

  Of self-defense! My good land!

For he can run, as swift as sound,

  To where his goose may hang high-

Or thrust his head against the ground

  And tunnel half to Shanghai;

Or he can climb the dizziest bough-

  Unhesitant, mechanic-

And, resting, dash from off his brow

  The bitter beads of panic;

Or should pursuers press him hot,

  One scarcely needs to mention

His quick and cruel barbs, that got

  Shakespearean attention;

Or driven to his final ditch,

  To his extremest thicket,

He'll fight with claws and molars (which

  Is not considered cricket).

How amply armored, he, to fend

  The fear of chase that haunts him!

How well prepared our little friend!-

  And who the devil wants him?
