    If she says it
    to a man who hears it
    He must first bow and
    ask What have I done?

    When she says it
    he denies it, he calls it money
    and indignant says president
    also is suspect innocent
    Nation of shame, things I can’t live with

    There were hours
    when it was only ours in sacks
    Friends said to him: wail and lament
    Ask for her ear She has Spoken!
