Sonnet to Thoughtful Women

I did not wish to leave your warm embrace -- I did not wish for our sweet love to end -- And though your chauvinism's a disgrace, I cannot help but see you as a friend. Perhaps someday a sweeter girl you'll find, Who'll do just as you wish for her to do -- A girl who doesn't have a thoughtful mind, So she can focus all she is on you. She'll nod her head, and brainlessly agree With anything you say, to make you smile -- She'll cook your meals and serve you honeyed tea, And never stop her chatter all the while; So when your brain cells rot from lack of use, You've only you to blame, and no excuse.
