Ballade Of Unfortunate Mammals Analysis

Love is sharper than stones or sticks;

  Lone as the sea, and deeper blue;

Loud in the night as a clock that ticks;

  Longer-lived than the Wandering Jew.

Show me a love was done and through,

  Tell me a kiss escaped its debt!

Son, to your death you'll pay your due-

  Women and elephants never forget.



Ever a man, alas, would mix,

  Ever a man, heigh-ho, must woo;

So he's left in the world-old fix,

  Thus is furthered the sale of rue.

Son, your chances are thin and few-

  Won't you ponder, before you're set?

Shoot if you must, but hold in view

  Women and elephants never forget.



Down from Caesar past Joynson-Hicks

  Echoes the warning, ever new:

Though they're trained to amusing tricks,

  Gentler, they, than the pigeon's coo,

Careful, son, of the curs'ed two-

  Either one is a dangerous pet;

Natural history proves it true-

  Women and elephants never forget.



        L'ENVOI



Prince, a precept I'd leave for you,

  Coined in Eden, existing yet:

Skirt the parlor, and shun the zoo-

  Women and elephants never forget.
