Not had much time this week to 'pie but I've managed a quick nonsense entry. Will catch yours tomorrow!
Gladys started changing
into frills and smelling sweet
When Old Ally at short notice
said he'd take her out to eat!
To the new Grande GreeDee Mansion,
with it's first class restuarant
Where all gentleman's companions
give a fox fur fancy flaunt
Dining in a cosy corner
on a splendid velvet chair
He sipped his malted whiskey -
she felt rather debonair
The meal was just delicious
If only apple-strudel
lasted long into the night!
The piano gently tinkled
something pleasant, a la mode
Tobacco clouds did thicken
and the French wine freely flowed
Chatter slackened, food digested,
time to bid a fond goodnight
Until stark realization
made his eyes pop out with fright
He changed his mind and wore a jacket -
not as chilly as he thought
Left his wallet in the pocket
of the coat that he forgot?!
He tried his best to reason
even Gladys tried a plea
But the boss of posho-noshings
insisted on an exchange fee
Well, old Ally was left fuming
- lo, they wouldn't take his word!
That he'd call back in tomorrow
- pay the bill that he incurred
He was marched into the kitchen
told to stand before a sink
Forced to wash the finest china -
and dareth not to cause a chink!
The soapy-debt now over,
he sighed a sigh resound
While tucking in his baggy shirt
his wallet tumbled to the ground!
