An Elegy

Rating: 2.7

You were my constant companion
You were my faultless friend
You were my unfailing guide
You were my timely whip!

You were thick and you were thin
You saw me in my thick and thin!

You were fed once a month
You fed me all through the month!

You had me going through the whole beginning, writing of your loss, thinking that you were speaking of a loved one, then you spring it on us - you were talking about a purse! ! Hilarious and very witty - great imagination! ! A very good poem, thank you for sharing it. RoseAnn

This elegy is full of suspense - I kept guessing until I reached the line with LOST PURSE. What clever planning has gone into it! Simply wonderful! A 10+++
