Hurrying Off In A Hurry Poem by Ralph O'Grantson

Hurrying Off In A Hurry

Rating: 5.0

Hurrying off in a hurry
The damsel left the cottage
Nelly had gobbled up nearly
The bread and sizzling porridge
Barely had he filled his belly
She flew in like a partridge
Sorry forgive me I'm sorry
Tears flowing like a sewage
Marry you? No I can't marry
A peasant who only sells cabbage
She poisoned the dame and confessed in shame
Hurrying off in a hurry

A young lady forced into marriage by her parents, poisons her husband to be and flees the town.
(hurrying off in a hurry)

I love it Ralph its a really good write..smiles mind if I ask you to check out my poem The Swan Song...its a poets version of The ugly little duckling. Tell me what you think. Quite sad and so, how do you say it...snobbish I think of the women in a look down at the poor peasant that sells cabbage.

I love how you made a complete story in all but a paragraph. *giggles* I long to create something to solid yet short. Bravo unto thee! ! !
