CCXXX - A Three-way Hitch

Sunday Scribblings had a topic 'Hitch'.
Now, there are a number of possible meanings...

Three-way Hitch

A girl in the Shire,
Fancied the squire,
But, a hitch! He didn't want to date her.

So the little flirt
Hitched up her skirt
And encouraged his lordship to mate her.

He swears he declined
To be so entwined
But they were hitched a few months later.

  1. Gosh you have been busy with your writing this morning dear J Cosmo, apart from your poem being very clever I am studying this image of the hitch knot with the wedding ring. :)

    xoxoxo ♡

  2. Hahaha! LOVE your use of the multiple meanings of "hitch"! So clever!

  3. Must have been something in the coffee, Dianne!

  4. Good to see you got all possible meanings of the word in..let's hope they can un-hitch at some point too! Thanks for following..Jae

  5. Clever - nicely done!

    First time here, found you at Sun. Scribs. This was a saucy little poem, and the reason for the marriage was obvious!

    Curiously, when I was growing up in the 60s, every single first baby on our street was born "premature." Hmmm...! Thanks for the smile, and here's my take. Amy

  7. Hehe...I like it. Nicely done! ;)

    a story told well,
    your use of word hitch is quite apt in all references made.
    Nice :-)

  9. This poem is a delight. She must have had some other talents otherwise he might have bought her off.

  10. Love your saucy story and the clovehitch. Tigerbrite
