Last Line: Good woman, take my arm.
Alternate Author Name(s): Stevenson, Robert Lewis Balfour
Subject(s): Hunchbacks


I am a hunchback, yellow faced --
A hateful sight to see --
Tis all that other men can do
To pass and let me be.

I am a woman -- my hair is white --
I was a drunkard's lass;
The gin dances in my head --
I stumble as I pass.

I am a man that God made at first,
And teachers tried to harm;
Here, hunchback, take my friendly hand --
Good woman, take my arm.
