Here you will find the Poem Fighting Words of poet Dorothy Parker

Fighting Words

Say my love is easy had,
 Say I'm bitten raw with pride,
Say I am too often sad-
 Still behold me at your side.

Say I'm neither brave nor young,
 Say I woo and coddle care,
Say the devil touched my tongue-
 Still you have my heart to wear.

But say my verses do not scan,
 And I get me another man!
