A little ditty for a lady in my FT:
« on: Tuesday 28 November 17 14:35 GMT (UK) »
A lass from Brettenham in her prime,
Had three husbands at the same time.
When asked "Why the third?"
She said "One is absurd,
And bigamy, sir, is a crime"

(This lady had two children out of wedlock, married, left children with parents, had another child.  Left husband  (who returned to his mother), married another man, left him,  and finally found a peaceful life - one hopes - with Husband No 3 in Bury St Edmunds.)

What a grand idea to write a little ditty - I might give that a go where I have very little else to say.
