'Penelope, on Ulysses'
Never in Elysium, or on Earth
Have I met a man with colossal nerve
Like yours - Rag-bearded swine for whom my life
Sat still now hopes to leave this "aged" wife
And plans - again! - to valiantly flee
To sirens, far from dull duty and me.
Well, if he's inclined, this "aged" wife thinks
You ought to set sail. I hope your ship sinks!
