'A Woman Named Gassy Gussy' - Poem by Linda Winchell

There lived a woman named Gassy Gussy
with her food she was always quite fussy.
She only would eat, beans with no meat
but it made her tummy bloat up and get fussy.

She would eat a big plate of beans
washing it down with a warm pint of ale.
Then her belly would bloat, like an overfed goat
and her cheeks went from rose color, to quite pale.

One day It was said, Gassy Gussy must be dead
but never a body her neighbors had found.
All anyone seen, was a plate of beans licked clean
and said, was spotted flying overhead around town.
