They Went Home- Maya Angelou

Good morning:) I think it would be nice to post work by famous poets. This poet in particular is someone I am obsessed with. I know it's a cliche to be into poetry and love Maya Angelou but I don't care:) I love how she touches on every aspect of being a woman including our sensuality. Even those who are highly conservative in culture can relate to her words.enjoy:)

They Went Home

They went home and told their wives,
that never once in all their lives,
had they known a girl like me,
But... They went home.

They said my house was licking clean,
no word I spoke was ever mean,
I had an air of mystery,
But... They went home.

My praises were on all men's lips,
they liked my smile, my wit, my hips,
they'd spend one night, or two or three.
