Voss Lab





By Ogden Nash


I never saw an axolotl

But Harvard has one in a bottle

Perhaps,- and at the thought I shiver,

​The very villain from Fall River

Where Lizzie Borden took an axolotl

And gave her mother forty waxolotl.​








I Wandered Lonely as a Clod

By William Wordswords


I wandered lonely as a clod

Just picking up old rags and bottles,

When onward on my way I plod,

I saw a host of axolotls

Beside the lake, beneath the trees,

A sight to make a man’s blood freeze.


Some had handles, some were plain;

They came in blue, red, pink, and green.

A few were orange in the main,

The damdest sight I’ve ever seen.

The females gave a sprightly glance,

The male ones all wore knee-length pants.


Now oft when on the couch I lie

The doctor asks me what I see,

They flash upon my inward eye

And make me laugh in fiendish glee.

I find my solace then in bottles

And I forget them axolotls.
