The Last Of The Romantics

She was the only love he'd ever known For the cheap wedding ring he would atone She pined for a bigger "ice" A five carat stone would be nice The jerk bought her a one ton graveyard stone Robert L. Hinshaw, CMSgt, USAF, Retired © All Rights Reserved

And upon his epitaph shall he pen, "In life I was not nice, nay I did not get her that ice. But after my death... I shall pay a far heftier price." Ah, you capture the essence of what is wrong with society today, far too many of these self-centered and thoughtless pricks abound. It was funny yes, but it strikes a nerve :) Kudos sir.
