They Went Home - Poem by Maya Angelou

They went home and told their wives,
that never once in all their lives,

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 men's lips,
they liked my smile, my wit, my hips,
they'd spend one night, or two or three.
But...
