Quotation by S. X.

The Rights Man Gives to Woman:
The right to wake when he's asleep
The right to watch, the right to weep.

The right his simplest want t'attend,
The right to pleasantly construe him,
The right to bring his slippers to him,
The right to let him make the laws,
The right to find no fault for cause,
The right to comfort his distress,
The right to wear her same old dress,
The right his every joy to double,
The right to save him every trouble,
The right to clothe and teach the young,
The perfect right to hold her tongue.
