The Unpublished Works of #22, Steven Shutt

As a student well versed in the inimitable and immortal works of Steven Shutt, I feel it appropriate to here present an excerpt from his unpublished opus, "de pulchritudine" (On Beauty)

The eunuCH

What is beauty if not the absence of scabs
on the slendorous form of the eunuch?
Especially one who doth cheer for Les Habs
in a well-fitted, truncated tunic.

"What of the gazelle! What of the lemur!
What of the fair face of the ferret!?" you query;
While noble in taste and demure in their grace
They're nonetheless brazenly randy and hairy.

No, it's the eunuch for me - lithe, svelte and carefree,
Oh, that asexual sense of decorum!
Sitting there prim with his pubic hair trimmed
In his regular seat in Les Tricouleurs' Forum.

(de pulchritudine, 4.1.16-20)

Haha, it's actually a common misconception that enuch were asexual. Historically, they (especially the castratos) were quite the lovers. Androgynous perhaps (it was said they could be both in a threesome, like Farinellini if I remember correctly) but definitely not asexual.

Marks of the flesh,
Like scuffs on the mesh,
Tend to sully an otherwise unblemished beauty;
They scar what's beneath,
Like braces on teeth,
Despite what the kind Mrs G once told Tootie.
