Love Wins

There once was a branding woman that worked on a ranch She ran through woods looking behind every branch Frantic to find a tolerant male to arrange wedding plans Her methods guaranteed producing orangutang comedians Also, her cranky, exuberant life made the ranchers blanch Grandmother arranged a meeting to hear Francine's rants Knowing Granddaughter's strange ways warranted determents Temperance must transcend the errant flagrant desires As firebrands marked her ignorance with intolerant stares Piranha guilt sprang up for ransom, pondering the real tyrants The assurance of wrangling from parents with adulterant ways Francine, and Frank, alone on the veranda during their days Siblings needing the furtherance of love and instruction Suffered the hindrance of rancid marital destruction Random attention translated strangely, creating two castaways The children, under the guidance of the grandest of grandparents In arranged tranquil surroundings, estranged from things of ambivalence Grown from a cankerous start into the fragrant innocence of youth But for the lack of francs, school in France could deal better, in truth The appearance of courtship years made the need for etiquette transparent The end of the tale transports us two years forward With genteel manners granting old wisdom its reward Frank now owns the ranch where the ranchers work And Francine branded by a marriage proposal from a local Grange clerk
