Micksed Match

by Ruth S. Baker

“A Disney-obsessed husband and wife have been blasted online after… they spent
the last of their wedding budget on an appearance by Mickey and Minnie Mouse
rather than provide food for their guests.”

The guests at our wedding:
We thought we’d uplift them,
But now they are spreading
Complaints that we stiffed them.

They’re pulling no punches.
The cause of their grouses?
We gave them, not lunches,
But M. and M. Mouses.

What makes them so picky
(They’re hardly so skinny)
They wouldn’t choose Mickey,
Together with Minnie?

To friendship so fickle
We’ve no wish to truckle.
To us, any Mick’ll
Count more than a muckle.
