Two Timing Toad - Poem by Ernestine Northover

I hop on a bus, I race for a train,
Just to get back to see you again,
I hail a late taxi, and when I get there,
'She' opens the door with a 'rose' in her hair.

How can you love me, and love her as well,
To find her with you is absolute hell,
What a two timing toad, you've turned out to be,
Her 'rose' is the same, as the one you gave me.

    I like this for its clarity and timing as well as the content. But typical of the male of the species? It takes two to tango! (Report) Reply

    Toad indeed, and no prince! Short and not sweet! (Report) Reply
