Whether this is because she cannot sing a song of May in tune, or because she wants to go against the grain is open for interpretation. However, upon closer examination, it seems that this is a poem about a rebellious soul; someone who does not want to follow the rules arbitrarily set by the society. The poem can be taken to be a sort of ode to the women’s liberation movement. It is about a woman who does not follow what is expected, but rather marches to the beat of her own drum... ?Your Full Your Teacher’s 28 February...

In the first stanza, Stevens determines the terms that can be used to mean money such as “cash, stash, rhino, jack or just plain dough” (1-3). These terms may be used interchangeably to pertain to money. Noticeably, Stevens uses simple, even slang terms to make his... An Orthodox...
