Psalm 53:1

No one but a fool would say so, and he would not
say it with his head, for it does not require any
especial brain to see a design in all things, and

rib, and the rib that was said to be the nucleus for
the womanly creation; and they sharpen that rib, and
flourish it, and gnaw on it, and gnaw on it, and hold
on to it, as my greyhound for six months used to spend
all his spare time in gnawing on a bleached and
juiceless bone when he had plenty of good food offered
him. Coming suddenly on him in the morning, I would
find him gnawing that bone, though the day ...
