Doggerel For the Day
If you'll be my valentine,
I will be your concubine.
If concubines for you now hold no sway,
I will be your queen forever and a day.
If royalty is now passé
Leaving you with heart blasé,
I will try the role of "wife"
For the rest of my natural life.
If ever death do us part,
I leave you holding my whole heart
Which just goes to prove once again that Dorothy Parker I ain't!
The tune this got sung to as it unrolled itself in my mind on the drive to work this morning is equally mediocre, or worse.
