A war raged on twixt north and south
while dimpled smiles raised her fine mouth,
He wanted her, he loved her grace
but of her mind,well, there's no trace,
he catered and abused.
Although they'd breed her tall and fine
fed her on dates and cherry wines,
she was simply useless.
They'd made of her just what they wished
a receptacle, a tasty dish,
faults; they would address.
Then one foul day he showed his core
that gallant man was no mentor
unskilled in all but amour
He left her there by the balustrade
"I don't give a damn" is what he said.
Your charms I now abhor.
So as you see the North has won
don't let southern parts get you undone
mind your business
Leave him first that handsome bore
kick his arse out the kitchen door
he was simply useless.
