Experiment Degustatory

A gourmet challenged me to eat

A tiny bit of rattlesnake meat,

Remarking, "Don't look horror-stricken.

You'll find it tastes a lot like chicken."

It did.

Now chicken I cannot eat,

Because it tastes like rattlesnake meat.

- Ogden Nash

Precious Stones

An emerald is as green as grass,

A ruby red as blood,

A sapphire shines as blue as heaven,

But a flint lies in the mud.


A diamond is a brilliant stone

To catch the world's desire,

An opal holds a rainbow light,

But a flint holds fire.

- Christina Rossetti


Adam, Had 'em

- Ogden Nash
