Pa Magpie, somewhat of a mouse,
Was scared of his wife, the old rouse,
And followed her rules;
To take off his shoes
Before he came into the house!
Then the pose suggested something completely different....
‘Pa Magpie’, she called. ‘Are you free?’
‘I need you to come here to me!’
She sounded quite terse;
But he answered in verse:
“Please wait, I am having a pee!”
PS. Thank you everyone who contacted me over the last few days, by comments, mail and phone. It doesn't stop the anguish but it lessens it and that is the best anyone can do. The tide of tears is on the way out.
