It's either' this or else it's that, He lays the law plump and flat. There's nothing of the diplomat, . It's pretty sure, about him. , • He ihardly credits youwith sense, To differ shows you're very dense, ■ He thinks it quite a great offence, If you should seem to doubt him. No sort of reason will he deign, To give, that-he may make it plain. He cannot help your lack of brain, So don't you get him nettled. Sis declaration short and gruff, , You may imagine is a bluff, But still he says it. That's enough, The matter should be settled. I've done all that a woman can, Since first our married life began, To soothe and please the lordly man And bow to his dominion. I would not wish to be unkind, But, oh, I'd love to take and bindAnd gag him and then free my mind By giving my opinion. —" The Ladies' Own/"
