Triolet for a Man-Plagued Woman Pushed Too Far

 

Oh, please, your Honor, what’s a girl to do

when her many suitors get out of hand?

Mace? Bah! Blades? Nope! Bullets? Yeah…one or two….

But please, your Honor, what’s a girl to do?

I’m a proper lady, and even you

can see. Walk in my shoes—just understand!

Just see, your Honor, what a girl must do

when these (sigh!) suitors get out of hand.
