Mrs Flannigan, extremely short sighted'
had a visitor call one day;
sat him down, made some tea, then alighted
for a cup and a yarn, ‘twas her way.

Time came when the guest had to go;
he said “Thank you for all your bother;
Mrs Flannigan blushed, said, “Oh no!
It weren’t any bother, dear Father!”

When he’d gone, the good lady’s sonny
approached his dear mum, brow creased,
said, “Mother, you really are funny:
that was doctor who came here, not priest!

Mrs F turned the colour of port,
gave a look that could chasten or chill ya
said, “Good grief! For a moment I THOUGHT
Father Flynn got a little familiar!!”

Sometimes astigmatism can present problems and cause you to make a spectacle of yourself.

I made myself wait for this one, Patrick! I saw the title and KNEW I would love it.. but I began, as I said I would, at the end.. climbed my way ever upward.. made sure she was still there.. and Voila! She tickled me truly! (You, of course, being the major 'tickler' here.. hehe)... love the 'spectacle' pun.. my sweet Roger is enamored of all things 'punny'.. the louder the groan, the bigger he smiles.. Ah, yes, you're a cheeky thing, you are.. and I'm a giggling eejit! I thank you for that! The story is enough to pour on the accolades and do it with great pleasure.. but the rhythm and the chuckly rhyme make it a read and a half! Superb smiles to you, my clever friend. katy.
