My wife received a home visit
With conversation exquisite…
When I came back
The discussion track,
Was on our marriage (how is it?).
This third-year medical student,
Attentive and most prudent…
Took a few notes
Including some quotes,
Respectful, she was not im-pudent.*
She’d not been to Douglas before,
Said so as we met at the door…
It must be “thrillage”
To visit our village,
Will she come to visit it more?
*Normally the word “impudent” has the first syllable accented when said: IM-pud-ent. I have changed the accent onto the second syllable (im-PU-dent) to keep the rhythm of the stanza intact.
