Pesky Porcupine

by David Sheskin

A pesky porcupine who to date had only directed his pointy projectiles at puppies, piglets, parakeets and ponies one day elected to penetrate the pimply posterior of a prominent professor of poetry who was proselytizing in front of a perplexed pack of people about the pitfalls of pornography, promiscuity and pepperoni pizza. At the end of the day the police imprisoned the by now penitent porcupine who was put on probation so long as he adhered to the percepts of pacifism.
