We take a little boy and his stuffed tiger
To wise potty , to clamp a nose on stink.
The tiger is stuffed inside its tiger body
Where it is all together empty of space .
This one had private views about aliens,
The green ones with antennae on head.
They were made public, but only to boys
Who believed in mankind’s original sin.
The stuffed tiger is now old and empty
And taxidermist is presently not vacant.
We are old and handicapped, w.c.-wise,
Whenever our tigers are not by our side.
(Calvin has Hobbes ,a stuffed tiger to everyone except boys who believe in mankind’s original sin. To those who are old and w.c.wise Hobbes is vacant and empty of space)
