A Defence For Women

By Robert Herrick

    Naught are all women: I say no,
    Since for one bad, one good I know:
    For Clytemnestra most unkind,
    Loving Alcestis there we find:
    For one Medea that was bad,
    A good Penelope was had:
    For wanton Lais, then we have
    Chaste Lucrece, a wife as grave:
    And thus through womankind we see
    A good and bad. Sirs, credit me.
