Zhaoming Wu

50-50 by Langston Hughes

I’m all alone in this world, she said,   
Ain’t got nobody to share my bed,   
Ain’t got nobody to hold my hand—
The truth of the matter’s
I ain’t got no man.


Big Boy opened his mouth and said,   
Trouble with you is
You ain’t got no head!
If you had a head and used your mind   
You could have me with you
All the time.


She answered, Babe, what must I do?


He said, Share your bed—
And your money, too.
