MADAM to MADAM
I worked for a woman, She wasn’t mean–
But she had a twelve-room House to clean.
Had to get breakfast, Dinner, and supper, too– Then take care of her children When I got through.
Wash, iron, and scrub, Walk the dog around– It was too much, Nearly broke me down.
I said, Madam, Can it be You trying to make a Pack-horse out of me?
She opened her mouth. She cried, Oh, no! You know, Alberta, I love you so!
I said, Madam, That may be true– But I’ll be dogged If I love you!
