They Went Home by Maya Angelou

Met with E. to discuss my collection. Was told that I have to write about a dozen poems hot damn. To take my mind off this, I went to the mall with R. to sell some movie tickets. It’s a long story.

They Went Home
Maya Angelou

They went home and told their wives,
that they never once in all their lives,
had they known a girl like me,
But…They went home.
They said my house was licking clean,
no word I spoke was ever mean,
I had an air of mystery,
But…They went home.
My praises were on all mens lips,
they liked my smile, my wit, my hips,
they’d spend one night, or two or three.
