“If happiness you are pursuing”

The entries:

If happiness you are pursuing,
Try to willing maid be a-wooing,
But hedge wedding bet,
A prenuptial get,
To help when ex-wife comes a-suing.

—-Chris Papa

If happiness you are pursuing
But your spouse has threatened her suing
Don’t run and hide
To choose a new bride
It will surely be your undoing

—-Al Regitz

In Honor of My Wife’s New Maltese(s):

If happiness you are pursuing,
One little thing’s your undoing.
Don’t be like a yuppy
Who gets a small puppy,
It only can lead to rug poo-ing.

—-Alan Combs

In honor of Not Fooling Around:

If happiness you are pursuing,
You had better give up your “in lieu-ing”
Just do the right thing,
Give her the bling,
And get ready for lots of good screwing.

—-Alan ghostposting for Ms. Scarlett

If happiness you are pursuing,
To look to outside’s your undoing.
Love yourself is the key,
And then happy you’ll be.
It’s you who you ought to be wooing.

—-Kirk Miller

If happiness you are pursuing
If may help to do some reviewing
Just look what you’ve got
Your lot’s worth a lot
Now keep doing what you are doing

—-Gary Hallock

The winner? A tie between Gary & Kirk
