A. D. Hope
Adam had learned the jolly deed of kind:
He took her in his arms and there and then
Like the clean beasts, embracing from behind,
Began in joy to found the breed of men.
Hope quotes
Quaking muscles in the act of birth,
Between her legs a pigmy face appear,
And the first murderer lay upon the earth.
