Unliberated lady's lament

Mother, I cannot change my tyre;
The jack is jammèd in the boot;
O, if you knew my state of ire!
     But O, who e're could care a hoot?   

 No longer shall I have such doubts-
About dear Ronald's wherewithal.
                        I'll tolerate his angry shouts°               °clouts
 And always heed his beck and call.

With apologies to Walter Savage Landor. (1775 -1864) 
'Mother, I cannot mind my wheel'
