Personal Column


I seek a maid to marry me.
A homely maid who’s dutiful
a girl who can smile pleasantly.
Above a maid who’s beautiful.

For pretty girls think they can rule.
An equal partner's what I need
and not an empty headed fool
who’s just another mouth to feed.

I am not handsome it is true
But I work hard and I’m well paid
I earn sufficient to keep two
I am a master of my trade.

If this advert appeals to you.
Apply at once do not delay
But only homely girls will do
all pretty girls should stay away.
