The Rhyme Of Eternal Triangles
Richard Koss

Teddy and Eddie were crazy for Betty
but Betty cared not for Teddy or Eddie.
You see, her heart belonged to Freddie.

But it was Dot, who gave Freddie the hots
even though she had two small tots
fathered by Paul, whom Dot used to ball.

Now Paul wanted no e-mails from females.
The only goose that could turn him loose
was a little moose by the name of Bruce.

Knowing that Paul cared not for the tots,
Dot had to see that her tots would have lots.
So she gave up on Paul to give Freddie her all.

Now to the Christmas party came Marty,
along with Annie and Fannie and Bea and Lee,
Teddy and Eddie and Faye and kay.

Then arrived Flo and Joe with the mistletoe,
all clinging and singing by the blue spruce,
while Paul broken-hearted, was waiting for Bruce.

Oh, oh, here comes Betty looking for Freddie
and as you might guess, this is becoming a mess.
Now here’s Bruce with Les, wearing a dress.

The booze is now flowing, the fireplace glowing,
sad hearts, glad hearts, watch out for mad hearts.
Who do you love? Not you, turtle dove.

And so it goes, a trail of heartaches and woes.
The curse of being burned when love’s not returned.
To continue in vain is just begging for pain.

Now if you want a dilly that’s even more silly,
think of the tale of the young, chubby filly
who smoked the cigar of our president Willie.
