Fixing the Blame

Fixing the Blame

If women do not
Go and do
Their Christmas shopping
And get through,
And get of things
The first and best
And give the clerks
A chance to rest
Before the last
Grand rush occurs,
‘Tis not the woman’s
Fault — not hers!
It is because the
Stingy mug
She married likes
To keep and hug
His wad till the
Last day he can —
Doggone that kind
Of married man!
For him no clerk
Will say a pray’r,
For him no one
Will have a cure.
For him no Christmas
Bells shall ring,
For him no children
Gladly sing;
He sadly through
This life shall plod
Afraid that some one
Wants his wad!
Oh, if you are
A married man
Now is the time
To tie a can
To stinginess!
It is your loss
If you don’t dig up.
Come across,
And hand ya bundle
To your frau,
And tell her: “Do
Your shopping now!”
