Fighting Words by Dorothy Parker

Fighting Words

Say my love is easy had,
        Say I'm bitten raw with pride,
Say I am too often sad -
        Still behold me at your side.

Say I'm neither brave nor young,
        Say I woo and coddle care,
Say the devil touched my tongue -
        Still you have my heart to wear.

But say my verses do not scan,
        And I get me another man!
