    And a blade shook between rotten teeth alack.

    For I could tell you a story which is true;
    I know a lady with a terrible tongue,
    Blear eyes fallen from blue,
    All her perfections tarnished—and yet it is not long
    Since she was lovelier than any of you.
    —John Crowe Ransom (1888–1974)
