Tale of an Exotic Name

 
He asked her to pronounce her name.
She didn’t want it on his lips—
Oh, didn’t want to play his game!
He asked her to pronounce her name.
Was understanding, though, his aim?
His eyes were leveled at her hips.
He asked her to pronounce her name.
She didn’t want it on his lips.
