[ Classic Corner ] Keeping The Peeping To A Minimum

  †
Peeping Tom † † †
I know him well † †  
† † †
He can usually be seen † † †
peering out from a gable green † †  
where his brothers dwell † †  
† † †
perched at the window sill † † †
dizzilly having his fill; † †  
young man certainly in Heaven † †  
† † †
Busily at stable scene across the way † †  
anywhere from scrawny to brawny - † †  
beautiful, brainy ladies numbering † †  
seven † †  
† † †
dutiful in going about their chores † †  
butt-naked and breasted-bare † †  
as the very day they were born; † †  
† † †
opting for no frocks † †  
not knickers nor any socks † †  
but choosing only to wear † † †
what the Creator did adorn them with † †  
and did so with great care - † † †
† † †
luscious, lengthy locks of hair † †  
† † †
Yet his manly man pride † †  
often hard with inside swell † †  
was subject to swiftly soften † †  
for one could also say † †  
Tom llkewise lived in Hell † †  
† † †
or to be more precise, Limbo; † †  
going nowhere was his life † †  
So ... † † †
let me explain in detail † † †
without further delay † †  
about his future wife † † †
† † †
Teenie, beloved bride to be † †  
was one of those lovely maidens fair † †  
Tom dilligently dated † †  
determined to take her hand † †  
† † †
For his Love, he waited † †  
and waited † † †
and ... † †  
† † †
But in sadness the womenfolk dwell; † †  
for their fallen father they do morn † †  
Lord Godiva died right where he fell † †  
not very far from the main gate † †  
†† † †
Why, he never even left the estate! † †  
† † †
All because of a horse! † †  
† † †
Such dangerous creatures!! † †  
† † †
This one in particular † †  
having too much giddy-up in its gait!!! † †  
† † †
And our brooding, nuding gals † † †
the seven Lady Godivas wait -- † †  
prolonging their pledge to marry † †  
Peeping Tom † †  
Peeping Dick † †  
† † †
Let's not forget † †  
Peeping Harry † †  
† † †
Peeping Sylvester † †  
Peeping Drexel † †  
† † †
and of course, † †  
Peeping Jack † † †
† † †
O! And last but not least on the list † †  
Peeping Frelinghuysen! † †  
† † †
The gist of this tale I tell † †  
is of men feeling lovesick † †  
desperately wanting their fiancees back † †  
† † †
Though the ladies no longer pay † † †
heed to anyone named Peeping † † †
because of the solemn oath sworn † †  
a promise they would be keeping † †  
without regret or remorse: † †  
† † †
to make the world's stables † † †
into much safer places † †  
from that unpredictably † †  
mad beast when it races † †  
known as the Horse! † †  
† †  
† †  
† †  
† †  
† †  
† †  
† †
