“I am a hunchback” by Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894)

 

I am a hunchback, yellow faced,
A hateful sight to see,
‘Tis all that other men can do
To pass and let me be.

I am a woman, my hair is white,
I was a darkhaired lass;
The gin dances in my head,
I stumble as I pass.

I am a man that God made at first,
And teachers tried to harm,
Here! hunchback take my friendly hand,
Good woman, take my arm.
