I am thinking of poor Philip Larkin, the head of the local university library, secretly shopping for porn in Hull, looking through thick specs for something girlie and naughty enough. And now he is spanked for it. Larkin:


Day by day your estimation clocks up
Who deserves a smile and who a frown,
And girls you have to tell to pull their socks up
Are those whose pants you�d most like to pull down.

A lesser man (me, for example) might have tried to work in 'frocks up' and spoiled it. Or maybe he was just preoccupied after the fourth line.
