I saw a man kneel before an exquisite princess
and hang onto her every word,
the unctuous fool fawning upon
a doe he would never take for his own.
She did realize the desperation
of his farfetched flattery
and departed at once,
but he clung onto her legs, beseeching her not go.
And she looked down upon him and his ironwilled clench on her
and cast eyes of profound contempt upon the impediment, with a haughty motion of the head asserting
"Only men of your nature would dare follow me more."
