My Uncle Billy
had a ten-foot willy.
He showed it to the girl next door.

She thought it was a snake
and she hit it with a rake
and now it's only six-foot-four.

Snake

A snake came to my water-trough
On a hot, hot day, and I in pyjamas for the heat,
To drink there.

In the deep, strange-scented shade of the great dark carob-tree
I came down the steps with my pitcher
And must wait, must stand and wait, for there he was at the trough before
me.

He reached down from a fissure in the earth-wall in the gloom
And trailed his yellow-brown slackness soft-bellied down, over the edge of
the stone trough
And rested his throat upon the stone bottom,
And where the water had dripped from the tap, in a small clearness,
He sipped with his straight mouth,
Softly drank through his straight gums, into his slack long body,
Silently.

Someone was before me at my water-trough,
And I, like a second comer, waiting.

He lifted his head from his drinking, as cattle do,
And looked at me vaguely, as drinking cattle do,
And flickered his two-forked tongue from his lips, and mused a moment,
And stooped and drank a little more,
Being earth-brown, earth-golden from the burning bowels of the earth
On the day of Sicilian July, with Etna smoking.
The voice of my education said to me
He must be killed,
For in Sicily the black, black snakes are innocent, the gold are venomous.

And voices in me said, If you were a man
You would take a stick and break him now, and finish him off.

But must I confess how I liked him,
How glad I was he had come like a guest in quiet, to drink at my water-trough
And depart peaceful, pacified, and thankless,
Into the burning bowels of this earth?

Was it cowardice, that I dared not kill him? Was it perversity, that I longed to talk to him? Was it humility, to feel so honoured?
I felt so honoured.

And yet those voices:
If you were not afraid, you would kill him!

And truly I was afraid, I was most afraid, But even so, honoured still more
That he should seek my hospitality
From out the dark door of the secret earth.

He drank enough
And lifted his head, dreamily, as one who has drunken,
And flickered his tongue like a forked night on the air, so black,
Seeming to lick his lips,
And looked around like a god, unseeing, into the air,
And slowly turned his head,
And slowly, very slowly, as if thrice adream,
Proceeded to draw his slow length curving round
And climb again the broken bank of my wall-face.

And as he put his head into that dreadful hole,
And as he slowly drew up, snake-easing his shoulders, and entered farther,
A sort of horror, a sort of protest against his withdrawing into that horrid black hole,
Deliberately going into the blackness, and slowly drawing himself after,
Overcame me now his back was turned.

I looked round, I put down my pitcher,
I picked up a clumsy log
And threw it at the water-trough with a clatter.

I think it did not hit him,
But suddenly that part of him that was left behind convulsed in undignified haste.
Writhed like lightning, and was gone
Into the black hole, the earth-lipped fissure in the wall-front,
At which, in the intense still noon, I stared with fascination.

And immediately I regretted it.
I thought how paltry, how vulgar, what a mean act!
I despised myself and the voices of my accursed human education.

And I thought of the albatross
And I wished he would come back, my snake.

For he seemed to me again like a king,
Like a king in exile, uncrowned in the underworld,
Now due to be crowned again.

And so, I missed my chance with one of the lords
Of life.
And I have something to expiate:
A pettiness.

Taormina, 1923

Oh well; I can live with your disapproval. I guess there are some who think having a giggle about something daft is...not the end of the world. Being a writer doesn't mean you have to read Dostoevsky and angst to yourself while Mozart plays in the background all the time.

Err, well, kinda, but mostly, not. The use of "symbolise" there is the tricky part . . . shrinks use phallic to mean that. Mostly phallic, particularly the way I'm using it, means "penis like," rather than symbolic. Yeah, I know I'm splitting ah, hairs, but, well, it's my nature.

Phallic really is just an adjective form of the noun phallus; phallus means penis.

Oy. You're a writer. You gotta do better than "like." Symbolism (http://www.bartleby.com/61/79/S0957900.html) includes the idea of an object standing for specific ideas.

A rose in poetry, particularly that of Stein, often symbolizes the vulva. It's not like the vulva so much, as it shares some common attributes, and has come to stand for or even be equated with, the vulva, in a lot of poetry.

Phallic really is just an adjective form of the noun phallus; phallus means penis.
Sigmund Freud surely must have used the word phallic a lot. He interpreted a cigar in women's dreams as representing a penis, and there was much other interpretation, such as why a woman was dreaming about a penis. But not one to overanalyze, Freud is quoted as once saying "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar."

And sometimes a tautology is just a tautology.

It wasn't the phallic imagery that struck me, but rather how the writer struggles with his conscience to kill the snake merely because the reptile is deemed unsightly and dangerous. He believes his actions are wrong, yet makes a half-hearted attempt just the same. When he faces his guilt, he understands what he's attempted is socially acceptable yet morally reprehensible.

OK; here's another one. It's in Middle English, but just read it phonetically, and you'll be fine. I've glossed some of the odder bits.

I have a gentil cok,
Crowyt me day; [Who crows for me at dawn]
He doth me rysyn erly,
My matyins for to say.

I have a gentil cok,
Comyn he is of gret;
His comb is of reed corel,
His tayil is of jet.

I have a gentyl cook,
Comyn he is of kynde; [He comes from good breeding]
His comb is of red corel,
His tayl is of inde.

His legges ben of asor,
So gentil and so smale;
His spores arn of sylver qwyt, [spurs]
Into the wortewale. [up to the root]

His eynyn arn of cristal,
Lokyn al in aumbry; [set in amber]
And every nyght he perchit hym [and every night he perches]
In myn ladyis chaumbyr. [In my lady's chamber]

British Musuem Sloane MS. 2593

Now then, I have a filthy mind; we know this. It's an occupational requirement, in fact, given that so much early literature is bawdy.

So you tell me -- is this a poem about a rooster or, well, a cock? And why?
