Betrayal

Naught she cared when out of love I touched her heart

But, alas, out of lust when the son of a gun touches her bosom,

She cries: “Oh, darling, once more, oh just a little more.”

Tell me, oh friend, how can jealousy not play jealousy’s part?

Then, off I go from her, and brood near the silent shore.

Shan’t I love a stripping whore, but take delight in being lonesome.

For love, much I did: once, twice and thrice

And lo! She told me a lie then lies after lies.
