impetuous (im-PECH-oo-uhs) adjective
1. Characterized by sudden and forceful energy or emotion; impulsive
2. Having or marked by violent force.
[Middle English, violent, from Old French impetueux, from Late Latin impetuosus, from Latin impetus, impetus.]
There was a young lady from Rheims
Whose tits were as long as her arms.
An impetuous lover too late might discover
That these were the least of her charms.
Suggested by a lithograph I saw in bookstore window,
showing superbuxom babe lying on chaise longue
("in position inviting coition....")
drawing down to her a wimpy guy, with caption from Schiller's Wilhelm Tell: "Halp zog sie ihn, halp sank er hin,
und ward night mehr gesehen."
