Bourgeois Nerd

At first, I read, "So the fierce Vulture rends her PANTY prey," and was all like, "Naughty!" Then I realized it was "panting prey" and I was rather dejected. It was much more interesting the former way.


I have faith that you'll write about this eventually. How can you not, with this kind of tempting material?


I've just stumbled on your excellent blog - what a great find. Thank you for linking to this poem -- I was not familiar with it, but I'm finishing up a dissertation chapter that deals with the "Papal Aggression" Act, and this is wonderful (well, perhaps wonderful is not quite the right word).
