Double Double Cross - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg
She was convinced that he believed
that she was very, very rich
and that the plan she had conceived.
Would go ahead without a hitch.
She’d satisfy her appetite
for luxuries at his expense.
Her future now was looking bright
and she was filled with confidence.
But what the lady did not know.
He too engaged in false pretence,
his seeming wealth was all top show.
Appearances took precedence.
Two tricksters both of whom must fail
A scheming minx a charming cad
who act their parts to no avail
There are no pickings to be had.
Each hoist upon their own petard.
Their cunning plans have gone awry.
They have received their just reward
as tricksters must eventually.
