I think its nieve to an extreme for people to assume that someone who is famous for writing on a particular style or on a particular topic would not write about anything else in there spare time if that was what they enjoyed doing. A overly proud and shallow view on an individual or an individuals work becuase they are in some way notable is by no means realistic or even usefull. We all have sexual organs right?

Spot on. It'd be nice to think it could be Milton, even if it isn't. Remember, Mozart's lost work Leck mich im Arsch (Kiss my Ass, literally Lick Me in the Arse) was recently rediscovered. That it was Milton could probably be proved/disproved; I note the work is handwritten, so handwriting analysis is possible.

I love how they call the poem "rude", but by modern standards its like so incredibly lame =P
