Abstract

The title applies to the following tetrad of poems, written entirely in four-letter words. In these pages in November 1986, I reported on the results of a prior experiment which I had conducted to test the literal sense of a Cole Porter lyric which claimed that contemporary authors now only use four-letter words in their writings. Prose presented definite difficulties, but verse appeared to be moderately tractable.
