James and Mable

James and Mable

A Chapter by Dave Brown

eating table


The elder James and wife Mable Appleberry

Purchased for themselves a darling dear fairy

Dressed in mock orange and velvet flamingo

They took her where ever they’d go


She was eight feet tall to the very inch

And could sit in the back seat in a real pinch

But she most often sat on the roof of their van

And this is where all their troubles began


Mable was very comphy around an eating table

But bout driving she was really, nowhere near able

And driving under a low bridge one early February

Lopped off the head of their darling dear fairy


Elder James angrily ripped up their shopping list

Because of how badly that sweet fairy he missed

In fact, he was so very awfully upset

He would take an action he’d eventually regret


His horrid heartache led him back to the fairy store

To purchase another eight-foot fairy he could adore

And though he was not much above her knees

Leaving Mable, together they walked into the trees


Where pon any chance glance, they enjoyed a romance

With other fairies, through trees, gaily they’d dance

Till came a repeated stomach sound he would hear

Eventually realizing he’d had no food for a year


And he thought once again to his wife, dearest Mable

With her hunger sating preparation of the eating table

And how dancing with fairies was sure, yah kina nice

But how now, it came at a real hungry price


Though it may to others, seem not at all apropos

Back to lonely Mable, a hungry James did now go

Now with no fairy, but a pet dog and heaven knows

It took six months for James to fit back into his clothes

This poem displays your wild-a*s penchant for unbelievable storylines . . . I wish I had a fraction of the imagination you display in your outlandish storylines! I'm getting the big red rejection screen from my Norton app fairly often this morning, which means that you will be having a helluva time trying to navigate the cafe. I'll understand if you resort to one-word replies. I know it's ill-advised to dig deeper into your flimsy messages, but I'm catching a drift here about how men will always marry the one who's a great cook & forsake the one who freely & enthusiastically sucks c**k -- thus, I never got married. (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Well that'll teach him. He deserves a much worse fate for abandoning his wives to go dancing around with pretty fairies.
