Kipling Meets Hefner

There ought to be some kind of award for this: “Most Timely Citation of Poetry in a Blog Comment,” perhaps? Daniel J. Flynn’s column about Hugh Hefner’s 85th birthday inspired me to musings of my own, which inspired a reader to quote Kipling:

On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life
(Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by loving his wife)
Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “The Wages of Sin is Death.”

Perhaps some of younger readers could ponder why they never encountered Kipling in their college literature anthologies.
