Doggerel For the Day




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.
