Dorothy Parker:

Fighting Words

Say my love is easy had,
Say I'm bitten raw with pride,
Say I am too often sad—
Still behold me at your side.

Say I'm neither brave nor young,
Say I woo and coddle care,
Say the devil touched my tongue—
Still you have my heart to wear.

But say my verses do not scan,
And I get me another man!

Justin E. H. Smith

Thanks Anon, I love Dorothy Parker, but somehow I'd missed this one.
