 A Courtesan's Rebuke

No more I
To abide
Thou priggish,
"Better late
Than never"
Attitude!

Not the wine,
Nor the food.
Not the music,
Nor thy countenance
Can turn my head.

Perhaps another time.
But tonight
My favors
Belong to.......
Another.

Brilliant period piece! Amazing how your ear has so deftly picked up the era. It sounds exactly right for what I imagine the 17th century to be. I love the protagonist's attitude and of course the title, "A Courtesan's Rebuke." Good job!

The other! For he (or she) that sits dimly in the shade is often the light in the darkness.

Short, sweet and superb!
