    On Being A Woman
    by Dorothy Parker (1893-1967)

    Why is it, when I am in Rome,
    I'd give an eye to be at home,
    But when on native earth I be,
    My soul is sick for Italy?

    And why with you, my love, my lord,
    Am I spectacularly bored,
    Yet do you up and leave me — then
    I scream to have you back again?
