Hale and Hearty

The 'Burma-Shave-ish' jingles are taking a turn for the dark.
Could this be blamed on the storms of autumn raging outside?

HALE AND HEARTY – Version 1
If you admire
me on my pyre
you’ll be a wee bit
tardy.

I’d value more
your je t’adore
while we’re both hale and
hearty.

HALE AND HEARTY – Version 2
Should you come admire
me on my pyre
that would be the wee bit
tardy.

I’d rather much
enjoy a touch
of kindness while I’m
hearty.

One thought on “Hale and Hearty

  1. I like this a lot. Very interesting the way you’ve tweaked the 2 versions to make the little differences stand out. Well done!
