“For little boys are rancorous
When robbed of any myth,
And spiteful and cantankerous
To all their kin and kith.
But little girls can draw conclusions
And profit from their lost illusions.”

And daughters may cost you double.
You dare not forget, as you thought you could,
That youth is a plague and a trouble.”
