ALL SHOULD MARRY (A SYLLOGISM)

In all concerns and cares of life,

Men should always take care;

“He takes a care who takes a wife,”–FRANKLIN.

Therefore, we all should pair.

A FRAGMENT

If life indeed is what it seems,

‘Tis more than one can carry;

So I think all should double teams,

Or, speaking plainer, marry.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

RINGS

Had rings perception, and the power,

Their ken with words to mate,

Full many a sweet-heart should grow sour

At tales they could relate.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

MARRYING FOR MONEY

A poor woman can

Even wed a rich man,

And yet live happy and well;

But woe’s the poor human

Who weds a rich woman,

For the wedding is the door to his hell.

NOTE:

Unlike my great-grandfather, I am a confirmed bachelor.  So there is a certain irony inherent the fact that I am posting some of these poems.  C’est la vie.
