Sister Pact

Whenever male drunks groped or pressed her,
Or know-it-all docs tried to best her,
Irena's thoughts strayed
From things "man" to things "maid" ...
And that bracing chill sound -- "Moya sestra!"

Simone Simon, a newcomer to America, is greeted at her wedding party by sinister Elizabeth Russell who murmurs words from the home country in
Cat People (Jacques Tourneur, 1942).
