Miss-diagnosis.




















'Why not a-bed?'
The doctor said,
'You pulse is all a quiver!'

'Your temperature
is very high;
I think it is your liver!'

"Oh no, good sir,
it isn’t that;
my liver is just fine."

"I just need sleep,
a place to lie,
to spend some hours supine!"

"My marriage bed
is out of bounds;
it’s otherwise employed."

"My bastard of a
husband has the
maid in there, conjoined!"

...............

 Dear Tess,
I hope you learn something from this poor woman's dilemma and at Willow Manor, always have available at least one spare bed!

  2. The thought of one's mate being conjoined with another in one's bed... sickening, but rather hilarious here ;-)

    1. Yes, she seems to have a problem with ego. Not enough of it... maybe you could send her some rat poison!

    1. Rene; That almost calls for an extra stanza!
      More cleverer than the post.

    1. So that's why she has a smile on her face! I did enjoy this witty poem Stafford.

  6. Great stuff, Stafford. Just what the doctor ordered.

  7. Those were sad times before the invention of king size beds. When you're young, you don't care if you have to lie on the floor to have a threesome, but when you get older, you just seem to need a soft surface, and I surely do hate it when the bed is so small that one person or another keeps falling out, and not only was this was a problem with a threesome, it made foursomes completely untenable.

    1. What you need Snow, is a huge round bed so there are no sides from which to fall!
      And what does Peggy have to say about all this?

    2. "And what does Peggy have to say about all this?"

      I just did a wee little post about my sex life, Stafford, so your inquiry arrived at a perfect time.

    3. I confess Snow, that I am infinitely more interested in my sex life than yours, but I will take a look anyway. :-)

    4. "I am infinitely more interested in my sex life than yours, but I will take a look anyway. :-) "

      Mine would not suit you, I'm sure, and your's would be a mystery to me, but this isn't to say that both aren't extraordinarily interesting.

  8. Brilliant! (And I do have a spare bed...)
