My sweet Dominatrix,
I promise not to play any tricks.
I'm at my leisure to give you pleasure:
I’ll do my work without a hitch,
You pay me well, you're so rich!
I will obey all your wishes.
I'll start by - washing dishes.
And when the last pot is scoured
I will kneel and beg like a coward,
To loosen my chain with a minimal pain.
Once I've made your bed,
And your Rottweiler's been fed,
For the next hour let me deflower
The vases in your windows,
Throw out those expired bimbos
But don't hit me at once,
I'll go pick new ones!
Take off my collar and I won't holler:
“Release me from your fiefdom
So that I may have my freedom!”
Instead, I will crawl like a sloth,
My hand clutching a cloth
And lift the skirt to wipe off the dirt
That has accumulated
Underneath your pretty bed.
While you have the funnies,
I'll shake out the dust bunnies.
And prepare the hot tub for a backrub.
Then, if you promise not to miss me,
I'll beg you to dismiss me.
