Two Pair

A Poem by Debbie Barry

Just a little rhyme that wandered into my head.


Two Pair


Sarah and Susan were sisters;

Ev‘rything did they share;

Johnny and Jacky were misters

With not a coin to spare.


Sarah and Johnny were married;

To ask, Jacky did dare;

The minister never tarried;

Jack’s ring soon Sue did wear.


Sarah and Johnny were happy;

With babes they were well blest;

Susan and Jack weren’t so happy:

They’d no parenting zest.


Sarah and Susan were sisters,

Who liv’d contented lives;

Johnny and Jacky were misters,

Blest with wonderful wives.
