cannot keep a man

oh no, please wait
i have not yet begun.
you will like me, you will –
love me, if you keep quite still.
be patient, be kind
and maybe you will find
that this girl from London, small and poor
is the very one you’re looking for.

don’t kill me off yet.
don’t let me go or turn me down –
i have so many whims and gifts,
gifts for you!
i will spend all i have on you –
all i get on you.
for what am i if i cannot keep a man?
