Days Gone By - stories from the past

Tombstone Tuesday: They found a way to get even with their spouse

Here lies my wife in earthly mould,

Who, when she liv’d, did naught but scold;

Peace, wake her not, for now she’s still,

She had, but now I have my will.



Here lies my poor wife, much lamented

She’s happy, and I’m contented.



This turf has drunk a widow’s tear,

Three of her husbands slumber here.

It may be interesting to state that the tearful

widow was still living with a fourth partner.


My wife lies here,

All my tears cannot bring her back;

Therefore, I weep.
