Poems: Unfortunate Coincidence


I'm known for my cynicism and despite recent declarations of love, I still think Dorothy Parker has a point.

Unfortunate Coincidence

by Dorothy Parker

By the time you swear you're his,
Shivering and sighing,
And he vows his passion is
Infinite, undying ---
Lady, make a note of this:
One of you is lying.
