Magpie 164 (warning: elements of bad language)




JACK AND JILL REVISITED

When Jack and Jill went up the hill
Jack forgot about the water.
"We've got no bucket,
Jilly! F***it!"
Jill said, "you didn't oughta
Use such language!".  So she sulked
While Jack sat and adored her.
Only someone seeing her face
Could tell how much he bored her.

The moral of this  tale is clear
If love is to be sought, a
Lasting relationship requires
A bucket full of water.

  4. True! Your Mags are always a breath of fresh air. But what chance has Jack got wearing a nerdy yellow vest like that?

  6. Was the good Doctor seeing double? I love the Jack and Jill theme. No other blogger seems to have seen it that way.

  7. Trellissimo I think it unlikely any other blogger usually sees Magpie through the same original eyes that Frances has.

  9. She does seem a bit sulky here. The ending is quite a treat. So that's the secret to a successful relationship :)

  10. If there had been a bucket, she might have poured the water over his head to shake him up a bit...

  13. I noticed the hill but never made the Jack and Jill connection. This is why you, Frances, are rich and I am not.
