    It went so fine for a week or two
    And then we started what old couples do
    The sweet faced angel turned into a hag
    That screams, yells, curses and brag

    "You sodden old brute, how dare you yell.

    I've got a bit saved for the mistress and me."

      He started to gather the things that he could
      while the old missus eyed up the charred firewood.
      She picked up a piece in her tiny pink hand
      And upon his bald head did the the firewood land.

        Give grace and kindness with the things in your hand
        Be careful with touch how those things will land.
        Only touch lovingly the things you would get
        from others you touched and others you've met;
        For the things you give others with love or with spite
        Will return someday to you with even more might.

          "A boomerang, yes, this is what I will need," said the crazy old man thinking he would be freed.

          "Oh, ho!" he smiled slyly and went to the phone.

            You're supposed to be rhyming, my pretty young dear.

      A cannonball scream at the school of big rhyme

    just a fraction of action
    can throw out the gear
    but to be missing in action
    is nothing to fear

    Looking around to see...

    Oh, right.  We forgot all about the old hag
    and her cheating old boy who was dragging his bag
    when she clobbered him good with a chunk of old wood
    and he offered her up to the house as old slag

    So what's to become of these miserly two
    he took all her money and outbound he flew
    to the arms of another young filly who will
    turn out to be just a new contrary pill.

      With no life lesson learned, for either of the two,
      ...both faced with the question, "What should I do?"

      Love is lovely, but lust is powerful too,
      ...neglecting the former leaves both, with a jaded view.

        and now we have learned why men should not CHEAT,
        the grass isn't greener, its filled with deceit.
        The man went looking to quench his own thirst,
        and ended up with another 'old hag' who was worse.

        So bitter and upset they went each their way
        The game got just too dangerous to play
        The hag dreaming a real prince to meet
        The schmuck longning for a lady so sweet


        As they say,  hope's the last one to die
        So the schmuck and the hag should no more cry
        In this life you what you give you get
        There's no use in living in anger and regret

      couturepopcafeposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Thon pudding is wonderful, thick and sublime
      I would be your wife for this pudding in time
      That mean streak you've shown throwing pears at the sheep
      Is something I'll fear when we two are asleep.

      So Spannigan Hannigan drinking his ale
      Did marry the wench and he then became pale
      Just thinking he lost all his freedom and then
      He proceeded to throw her into the sheep's pen.

      He gathered his pears and his apples and suet
      And tried for a week to divorce and undo it
      But preacher man said you are bound to the wench
      Now Spannigan Hannigan sits on his bench

      Just trying to figure out how she got through.
      "My pudding," he cried."So now here's what I'll do.
      I'll bake no more pudding and then she will go."
      So he didn't, she did, and the rest you all know.

    Not sure where our gracious host, Edlira, went,

    I had thought perhaps another verse lay just around the bend,

    the bird flew from it's branch
    in the window it came
    then opened his beak, saying
    "If it's all the same..."

    "Wait!" cried Suzie
    as she sat up in bed

      I was going to tell you something you should know.
      Did you know you're quite crazy?" Then in came a crow.

    And Suzie was left with eyes open wide
    "yeah right!" she said, as the birds took their flight
