A Minor Called Morris


The problem started with a minor called Morris,

Her sensuous body made me neglect Doris,

As I polished and caressed every delicate part,

Completely obsessed right from the start.



The joy of a rally weekend with my mistress,

Was brought to a halt by my wifes distress.

Next time join us I gently implored.

She did, and suddenly Morris was adored.



She borrowed my keys, made a duplicate set,

Now completely obsessed with my beautiful pet,

By deed poll changed the name to Boris,

Now turned into a male, no longer my Morris.



Then one morning they left in a hurry,

To a place somewhere in Surrey,

My wife drove off with my mistress,

To live with this bloke called Horace.



Now Morris or Boris lives with Doris and Horace,

I am left on my own to seek solace,

So Ive found me another of quite different rank.

Im now driving out with an ex-army tank.

A. R. Lewis


FootNote: Just a bit of fun about Gwens insistence on keeping her old Morris Minor.
