Hi Fliss,

A day in the park surely doesn't require an oops!

I enjoyed and was educated by your link about Greek small penises, and only regretted it didn't show any of this: or this by Aubrey Beardsley:

Lear is so superb. Yes, every inch a king is full of irony. The crown is lovely and rather Christlike. The play also contains my favorite iambic pentameter, as it happens: Never never never never never.

Glad you enjoyed the poem. It seems to have drawn relatively little comment.
