been & gone

she will say the opposite in polite company

but she don’t like men

oh there will be a husband lover or two

been & gone

but the truth hangs there as shadow

as she bristles at any supposed slight

on the plight of women

there appears for her to be no travails

any slight thing might ail

the perfect world of the conniving boys

& sly dog that I am

I will prod here & there for the fun

just to keep her awake

on her toes slowing her excitement

of the black & white world

she is living in

her exasperation comes in slow waves

but she does

keep coming back for more
