"i like to have a martini,
two at the very most.
after three i'm under the table,
after four i'm under my host!"
oh, gallant was the first love, and glittering and fine;
the second love was water, in a clear white cup;
the third love was his, and the fourth was mine;
and after that, i always get them all mixed up.
razors pain you;
rivers are damp;
acids stain you;
and drugs cause cramp.
guns aren't lawful;
gas smells awful;
you might as well live
"salary is no object:
i want only enough to keep body and soul apart."
"this is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly.
it should be thrown aside with great force."
"he is beyond question a writer of power; and his power lies in
his ability to make sex so thoroughly, graphically and
aggressively unattractive that one is fairly shaken to ponder
how little one has been missing."
by the time you swear you're his,
shivering and sighing,
and he vows his passion is
infinite, undying -
lady, make a note of this:
one of you is lying.
ha ha ha. hıh.
the ladies men admire, i've heard,
would shudder at a wicked word.
their candle gives a single light;
they'd rather stay at home at night.
they do not keep awake till three,
nor read erotic poetry.
they never sanction the impure,
nor recognize an overture.
they shrink from powders and from paints.
so far, i have had no complaints.
my heart went fluttering with fear
lest you should go, and leave me here
to beat my breast and rock my head
and stretch me sleepless on my bed.
ah, clear they see and true they say
that one shall weep, and one shall stray
for such is love's unvarying law....
i never thought, i never saw
that i should be the first to go;
how pleasant that it happened so!
