Woman, O poised woman,

You set my soul on fire

Oh! That burning desire!

Turn my world upside down,

Give me an abstraction

No, I’m not a liar

I know this game isn’t fair

We’ll either have the best time

Or the worst nightmare

Your astonishing class,

Overwhelming sass, I can’t doss.

Let the chores begin, come on,

Lean in

It’s a long lost skill and I know the drill

Let me take your hand and

You take mine,

In the nights so dark and mornings, sullen

Allow me to say, O young maiden

I’m your man and your path is Eden.
