Phizzintry

From a conversation about Shel Silverstein's poem "The Phizzint," (which first appeared in Playboy magazine), below (lines 3-4 and 6-7 should be indented):

You’ll never know an animal
more considerate of human feelings
than the Soft-Shelled Phizzint.
Someone has mistaken this one
for a pincushion
and he’s too polite to say he isn’t.
