Let Me Lick You. You'll See

Please don't say I slither. I don't like what
You imply by that. I'm not a snake. I have
Two hands, and they are clean by modern
Standards. I do not pilfer much from work.
I pay my share of taxes, more or less, and I
Am relatively honest in my dealings with
Most people, though not everyone. One
Woman who has drawn me to her, like
A fish to baited worm, subjects me to such
Haughtiness that I must creep (though never
Slither) to get close to her.
