A wife convinced
against her will
Is of her own opinion still,
But my wife is a word-smith, sir.
You don't mix phraseologies with her;
In argument, a rhetorician;
In all debate, a smooth tactician;
So reasoned in her explanations;
In all her condescension, patience.
She wields a logic iron-clad.
Last night, briefly, I thought I had
A minor point against her gained.
"O.K. then, fuck you!" she explained.
