I, Being Born A Woman And Distressed

Poem By Edna St. Vincent Millay

Faster dragons will question my integrity,
Like a man detested I seek my revenge
On the bravery which defiled the bad dragon
That defends itself, itself and no other.

A little disorder is an alphabet to learn
For this dragon to learn and teach to its young.
The eggs have hatched and little do you know -
A word has been conveyed of late - you are mad!

The mad dragon has been a large eater of its own eggs!
