this is my favourite poem...by Thomas Moore.
I read it from a book about all the funny poems. If I'm not mistaken this poem is taken from "A Joke Versified"..I don't know if it's a title of a book by Moore or it's the title of the poem. Anyway, here it is:
"Come, come" said Tom's father, "at your time of life,
There's no longer excuse for thus playing the rake—
It is time you should think, boy, of taking a wife."
"Why, so it is, father—whose wife shall I take?""
