The Misfits And The Fortune Teller.

Updated on January 8, 2014

Well here we are with the third hub in this series all about the Misfits.

If you would like to catch up with the previous ones follow these links.


Fatty's wife.
Fatty's wife.

Fatty was so ill this morn

He had a headache so bad.

Of the very worst kind.

And his missus was mad.

She'd gone to such lengths

To grind down poor Fatty

"Why me?" he cried so forlorn.

"Why not her sister Betty ??!"

A fortune teller she wanted to see

Who was appearing at Builth Wells.

Everyone said she was great

The truth she always tells !!

Fatty the night before

Had been so very silly

He'd badly wanted to go fishing

Instead of listening to Milly.

He'd sat in the garden

And thought I'll have one.

But the cider had been nice

And so hot was the sun .

One glass after another

He downed with glee!!

Until he woke up this morning

And thought "Oh poor me!!"

But Milly had a grip of iron

And also nerves of steel.

She grabbed Fatty by the collar

And threw him behind that wheel.

They arrived at the show

And Mily was so excited.

So looking forward to be told

All she had always wanted.

She was soon sat with Mystic Mildred

And was ready for the off.

Mildred started by carressing the ball

And giving a very strange cough!!

"Tttttell me the ttttruth oh grrreat one!!"

"I aam your htttumble slllave!"

"Oh yyyes I will tttell herrrr !!

"This nnnews sshhee will cccrave!!"

Milly was silent for once in her life

And also a little frightened !!

Mildred was swaying like a bush

As on and on she chanted !!

"Oh Milly today is your day !"

"The one you've always wanted!!"

"You will meet a dashing man in blue !!"

"You should be so very excited !!!"

As they drove home Fatty was nervous,

Milly was acting so very strange.

Almost as if she was someone else !!

Maybe she'd gone deranged !!!

A very loud siren gave him a fright

And he almost swallow his fag !!

Then a man in blue opened his door

And ordered "Please blow in this bag!!"

Poor Fatty was to his dismay

A massive twice over the limit.

The policeman took him away in cuffs

And Milly shouted ."You big daft twit!!"

Poor Milly was so so upset

And cried bitterly in her seat !!

As she realised that this was the man,

That Mildred had sworn she would meet !!

Fatty lost his license so quick

And walked for once in his life!!

"Never again will I go to a psychic!!"

Said his bitterly dismayed wife.
