I am no lounging goddess or tranquil nymph,

Nor is it my goal to satisfy your needs,

Though easy it would be,

I am no captive concubine who does not care

What is in it for me.  No--

You are not enough for me

And (dare I say again?) I'd rather be free.

So if all the words you say, she heeds

Take her of the subservient mind

And leave alone women of my shrewish kind.
