She goes harassed, back to her house In her little peaceful den When what comes but to her mind-- That rowdy horde of men. Now afraid, now detesting, Now she feels surprise; Sudden burst of anguish felt, Suddenly she cries. She recalls a shallow laugh, Eyes full of shallow lust-- How life of shame was cast on her-- Each moment a disgust. Shame she feels, but then those That should be ones to cry, Instead laugh and laugh again-- Drink their glasses dry. Of shame, of angst or shame again Shall this be her thing to dwell upon She asks, and tries to figure out "What if from hence I'm gone?" Then she feels the coldest chill, Running down her spine, "Why must I ever give up myself Or let go of what is mine?" "Why must I be the one alway To take this bitter pill? Must not those that dole it out Find too their fairer fill?" Be that be and then I will Hold myself my hand A faintest breeze brushes past her, She now will keep her stand...
