The Widow's Collection

A Woman Scorned!

The Widow's Collection

Little Mr. “Man So Tough.”

Should have shut his mouth when she said, “Enough!”

So, she baked him a muffin...

With a secret stuffin’…

That made him turn rigid and red.

That old family recipe had worked so well.

His eyes bulged out and he started to swell.

And with his last dying ember…

He watched her cut off his member…

Now it sets pickled on her bedside table.

Now the merry widow has met a new guy.

“Step into my parlor,” said the Spider to the Fly.

For, it’s her mission in life…

To end all women’s strife…

And add to her bedside collection!

Like “Uncle Sam,” she needs “a few good men.”

For sex and slaves til it’s time once again.

Then it’s dinner for two by candlelight…

“We’re having blueberry muffins for dessert tonight…”

Now there’s three in her set, number four’s on the way,

And five’s already caught in her web!!!
