Three Pennies of Wisdom
When her fright in crossing the road
made her cling to him,
he found himself praying
for the traffic to get worse.
By a simple stratagem
she reversed their situation:
she first designated him
as the guardian of her chastity,
and then yielded completely.
Nearing the gate of her hostel,
he leaned over to steal a hasty kiss
but missed her lips,
brushing her cheek instead.
"That was cheeky," she punned
before reprimanding him:
"If you lose control of the steering wheel
we'll end up as glass, steel, blood
and twisted hearts floating down the creek."
