Keep your rings and roses

A ditty.

Keep your rings and roses,

For sticking in your noses,

I want no symbol of your love,

No simpering, fluttering, feeble dove.

I gave you mine, the real McCoy,

That time and tide will not alloy,

You tossed it in a handy pocket,

Didn’t even use a locket,

And let it wither where it lay,

Maybe you’ll regret it, someday.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
