The Unusual Ballad of Lily and Pierre

The Unusual Ballad of Lily and Pierre

Feline Lily strolled one day
and behold who did she see,
Pierre, the Tom cat of her dreams 
under a cherry tree.

She gazed at him, he winked at her
from that day it was their plight,
they were destined for each other
it was true love at first sight
She admired his wiry long black hair
on his back a white stripe too,
but she had one little problem
she didn't know what to do.
In certain situations 
at any time or given day,
he sprayed a putrid odor
that seemed to never go away.

She didn't know how to tell him
that he really stunk,
and he didn't know to tell her
that he actually was a skunk.

Lily couldn't bear to leave him
and so the story goes, 
she chose to wear a clothespin
daily on her nose.

I guess the lesson learned here,
whatever flaws you think you've got,
true love can rise and overcome
you're a skunk or not.
