Fighting Words

Dorothy Parker

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!
