By Ogden Nash

Any hound a porcupine nudges

Cant be blamed for harboring grudges.

I know one hound that laughed all winter

At a porcupine that sat on a splinter.

Any hound that touches a porcupine

I know one hound that laughed all winter long

At a porcupine that sat on a piece of wood

Grew out a mane,

And now he resembles a bear!

I wish that my room had a floor,

I dont care so much for a door.

But this walking around

Without touching the ground

Is getting to be quite a bore.

There once was a very small mouse

Who lived in a very small house,

The oceans spray

Washed it away,

All that was left was her blouse!
