Young Stud


“As for the poem, one dragon,
however hot, does not make
a summer”—J. R. R. Tolkien, 
“Beowulf: The Monsters and 
the Critics,” Proceedings of 
the British Academy (1936)

Fairy godmothers flit around—
him, entranced by his rather
butchy Beowulfian bestiality

Who can blame them—
Departmental queen bees
ensconced in Historia closetry

Miss Mythologia with her—
Sister Philologia platitudes,
Archeologia & Laographia

Such excellent ladies—
surely they know seminal
Freshman sexuality nicely?
