SADIE! THE SINGLE LADY!

poem by: Darryl Ashton
Written on Jul 13, 2016

Sadie went to a dating agency,
And told them of her plight,
They took down all her details,
So they could get it right.

Sadie wanted a new love, 
To share her lonely life,
She’d sent the last one packing
When she found he had a wife.

‘It’s not about the money,
Doesn’t matter if they’re poor’,
Yet the first was nice, but on the dole,
So he got shown the door.

The fisherman was a real good catch,
He smelled of the sea and salt,
But he never once, took her out to eat,
They only ate the fish he’d caught.

The electrician was a bright spark,
His knowledge she could use,
A real live wire to say the least,
But then he’d blow a fuse.

The clergyman wanted to altar her,
And was much too well – behaved,
He just wanted to save her soul,
But she didn’t want it saved.

The banker, nice by all accounts,
Bought her an expensive gown,
But she lost interest straight away,
And he moved out of town.

When she nailed the carpenter,
She thought she had it made,
But he was only interested
In getting the new floor laid!

The magician was a tricky guy,
And Sadie lived in fear,
That he would wave his magic 
wand,
And make her disappear.

She liked the earthy gardener
Whose turnips won first prize,
And whe she saw the size of his 
Brussels sprouts,
She couldn’t believe her eyes.

But the baker, was the icing on 
the cake,
Although an ugly so and so,
Not only did she like his Belgian 
buns,
But he also had lots of dough!
