Dr. Archibald's Anatomical Poetry
here are a some examples of the hundred or so poems of dr. Archibald:
It isn't just a thing of beauty,
The nose is there to do its duty.
We owe to it the air we breath
And shouldn't wipe it with our sleeve.
I shall approach the mouth with gravity
Because it's such a gaping cavity.
We use it when we shoot the breeze,
And stuff it full of calories.
Don't blame it for these functions double
If it gets you into trouble.
The care you take should have no limit
For what comes out and what goes in it.
The male has eyes that tend to wander
But that's hardly any wonder,
especially if he's sitting next
to someone of the other sex,
For ladies know since eve and Adam
Things will happen
When they bat 'em.
and here are some that Dr. Archibald has written about animals:
If you see a skunk along the trail
You shouldn't try to grab him by the tail.
You'll likely find out that's the end
He's most likely to defend.
It's there he's got some special vents
To share with you his special scents.
You'll find them quite unsatisfactory
To your system olfactory.
the purple cow
If you see a purple cow
She can use your help right now.
She's got trouble with her respiration
and need mouth to mouth resuscitation.
