entitled, WHAT I DON'T LIKE
A problem which
If treated right
Would stack my papers
Out of sight
And fill my room
And what is more
Would even fill
The second floor.
But then there is
No sense I fear
To tell of all
The ways they're queer
Because I know
They couldnt heed them
Even read them.
The power of speech
In women grieves me
Really peeves me
A woman's words
Are like a riddle
Talk so much
And say so little.
Paint and powder
A Teal beauty's
I paint a house
To stand the rain
But paint on people
And women worry
But never hurry
A million things
I could relate
I got a date.
