My wife said I’d hear little feet

I thought having baby be sweet

But my soul would fidget

When I found wife Bridget

Ran off with a midget named Pete

One of your best, Martin, Bravo! Love your double rhyming scheming, my man!

I guess you should have known it anyway,

The best comes in small packages they say.

Ha ha ha! Midget Pete had the little feet? I think Bridget's going to wind up disappointed in the long run :D

Seems that your wife ran off with little feet. A twist I did not expect.

Lol! What a coincidence - I've just published a humourous article, which I created last year, containing midget/dwarf references!That guy's face is priceless.

This is a great twist on said theme.

All the best,

Big difference between the two. I'm sure that you didn't care about those little feet.
