Smile and Nod

The cow is of the bovine ilk; One end is moo, the other, milk.
Jerz, ''Poems: Short but Effective'' -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

It is amazing how something so short can have such an impact. I know I have said this before in other entries, but it is a thought that continuously pops up. This short poem, as well as the other's I've read thus far by Ogden Nash, manages to get the whole point across in only a few lines. The point is always something light and often ridiculous. These few lines alone are enough to prompt the famous smile-and-nod attitude.
