Dorothy Parker

(22 August 1893 - 7 June 1967 / Long Branch / New Jersey)

Mortal Enemy


Let another cross his way-
She's the one will do the weeping!
Little need I fear he'll stray
Since I have his heart in keeping-

Let another hail him dear-
Little chance that he'll forget me!
Only need I curse and fear
Her he loved before he met me.
