poor augie had a problem

and he knew not what to do
instead of finding one true love
he found he now had two
.
now this has happened often
and of course, one never wins
but in his situation
the two girls he loved were twins
.
this too has happened often
it is not a story, fresh
but these two twins were joined
by a connecting band of flesh
.
the one was known as april
and the other known as may
and they'd be joined together
to their final dying day
.
so augie never saw one
with the other left behind
and his attraction to them both
began to blow his mind
.
cause if he chose to marry
which sweet girl would wear his ring ?
and what about the other ?
right along they'd have to bring
.
the first one kissed was april
and the second was one was may
he thought there'd be some trouble
not one word did either say
.
but could they love each other
as a threesome all their life ?
and would there be a minister
who'd grant an add-on wife ?
.
now if you think a threesome
in a marriage would be heaven
skip the stanza, next
and read the stanza marked eleven
.
or if you have the notion
that in further we should delve
skip the stanza, next
and read the verse that's labeled twelve
.
11
there found a parson willing
to pronounce them man and wives
and they formed a perfect triad
and were happy all their lives....THE END
.
12
he proposed to dearest april
and she said she'd be his bride
and may, so happy for them
just committed suicide...THE END
.
now if you hate this ending
and you think its rather mean
forget you read that stanza
and move on to verse fourteen
.
14
he then proposed to april
which made may begin to laugh
she suggested a magician
who could saw a girl in half
.
if you think that that would do it
then just read the stanza next
if you think that that is stupid
maybe seventeen'd be best
.
they found a touring circus
and the man in charge said, "great"
when may was separated
april set the wedding date...THE END
.
17
"that will not do", said april
we can never be apart
although we seem two separate souls
in fact we share a heart
.
"but we could find a transplant"
augie, merrily, did chime
"and these days, inexpensive
they're a dozen to a dime"
.
and if you like that notion
stanza twenty should be fun
if you don't like the sound of it
move on to twenty-one
.
20
the heart they found was perfect
no rejection had occurred
augie married april
they'd removed the other third...THE END
.
21
but april was aghast at this
"we must not risk her life
we'll have to find a separate groom
who'll take her for a wife"
.
so if you think a foursome
would be something of a chore
read the stanza, next
if not, then move to twenty-four
.
"this shall not work", said augie
"it is too much to conceive
so, goodbye may and april
it is time that i should leave...THE END
.
24
"i think you're right", said augie
"we shall find another man
but it must be a perfect fit
i hope you understand"
.
now augie had a brother
who decided may was cool
so augie married april
while her sister married jules...THE END
.
now if you like that ending
there is no need to proceed
but if you find it wanting
there is one more you can read
.
this poem has made me crazy
so i'm gonna go back home
if you wish it to continue
you can write your own damn poem...DEFINITELY THE END
