  • Yet one feels almost justified still to acknowledge
    the deeper reflection of, albeit hackneyed,
    the Human Condition in Nature (reduced
    as she is from the nympho once over-extolled
    for ad-nauseum cyclic fecundity, to
    today's stripped-bare and thorny old sod half-heartedly
    whorily pouting a couple of blackening nipples).

    - Peter Reading, Raspberrying, from For the Municipality's Elderly, 1974
