This poem was written for the Genre Challenge:
Today’s genre and image:
Spicy: a romance in which married characters work to resolve their problems.
I have also included the following Word Prompts:
The Ballad of Ted and Flo
Florence and Ted
Were happily wed
But something had gone off the boil
So, one day they decided
And to me, confided
to start rubbing each other in oil.
Now I don’t usually condone,
This new raunchier tone,
But there’s a lesson to be learned in all this.
For while there is fun and surprises
In wearing disguises
It doesn’t always end in connubial bliss.
Flo told me then
It had all gone wrong when
Ted had suggested they try some role-play
She played a laundress
But it caused much distress
Doing nothing but laundry day after day.
Then apparently Ted
That Flo fitted him with a tight collar
This caused a flurry
And Flo had to hurry
When Ted turned bright red and started to Holler.
Now there’s plenty to be said
For trying fun in bed,
But be sure you choose the right way
For Ted and poor Flo
This just wasn’t so
And Flo moved in with me yesterday.
