Jack Spratt

Jack Spratt could eat no fat

His wife could eat no lean

Consuming stupid school girls

They licked each femur clean

Jack ate all the thin

Joan ate all the plump

Taking girls into the woods

Their bones put in a stump

Jack Spratt chewed away

His wife smacked her lips

The sheriff they did miss

Hands upon his hips

Says Jack, “It’s not my fault!”

Then Joan did reply

“I was not the one

who brought them by and by!”

Binding Love

Image result for chained love

You did not listen, helpless soul, when I said,

“Look out, or you’ll be snagged,
You childish thing, if you dance near her hand!”

Didn’t I caution you?

And now the snare is sprung.
To struggle is wholly hopeless.

Love has bound your tapping feet,
Kept you from twirling, twisting, without flow, to and fro,
Chained your ankle prettily, a decorated trinket,

To be displayed as a static trophy.


[A favorite that I posted a little over a year ago. Wanted to share again.]
