Special Feature Collaborative Poem--By Beth Winchcombe and Jack Horne--England

Mr. and Mrs. Wright

By Beth Winchcombe and Jack Horne

Where was her Mister Right?
He was nowhere in sight.

He wondered, "Could there be
A girl out there for me?"

No matter how hard she tried
Always the bridesmaid – never the bride!

At weddings, it's his doom:
The best man, not the groom.

She'd look at a dating site,
hoping to find a Mr. Right.

He'd join a dating site;
Yes, go for it tonight!

Could she give that a try?
She might find a guy.

Would anyone respond?
A brunette or a blonde?

The first one was rather stout.
She ruled him out.

A wrestler winked her eye:
He trembled, hoped to die.

Could "looks, unimportant" mean
He was handsome, tall and lean?

No, she was just too bold;
And not the sort he'd hold.

Pride goes before a fall... goes, she'd give it her all.

He looked into her eyes,
While smiling with surprise.

She tossed her bride's bouquet;
He loved their wedding day!
