Todays Oregonian, front page of the Living section, has decided some classic poems need some new umpf. To achieve this they have replaced a key work in each poem with the word "pants". Here are the results:

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his pants fill up with snow.

-- Robert Frost

Pants! Pants!
Nightmare of Pants!
Pants the loveless!
Mental Pants!
Pants the heavy judger of men!
Pants the incomprehensible prison!

-- Allen Ginsberg

Between the desire
And the spasm
Between the potency
And the existence
Between the essence
And the descent
Falls the Pants

-- T.S. Eliot

I sound my barbaric YAWP
over the pants of the world.

-- Walt Whitman

Hear the pants with the bells
Silver bells!
What a world of merriment their melody foretells!
How they tinkle, tinkle, tinkle In the icy pants of night!
While the pants that oversprinkle
All the pants, seem to twinkle
With a crystalline delight;
Keeping time, time, time, In a sort of
Runic rhyme,
To the tintinnabulation that so musically wells
From the pants, pants, pants, pants,
Pants, pants, pants
From the jingling and the tinkling of the pants.

-- Edgar Allan Poe

There are many that I miss
having sent my last pants out a car window
sparking along the road one night, years ago.

-- Billy Collins

Aunt Jennifer's pants prance across a screen,
Bright topaz denizens of a world of green
They do not fear the men beneath the tree;
They pace in sleek chivalric certainty.

-- Adrienne Rich

The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of pants unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird sings of pants.

-- Maya Angelou

Humanity i love you because you
are perpetually putting the secret of
life in your pants and forgetting
it's there and sitting down
on it.

-- e.e. cummings
