Southern Fiction

We meet the fair daughter
Of a sharecropper
And a plantation mistress
Gone bad

They hang the sharecropper
Inflaming the daughter
Whose debutante mama
Goes mad

I'm reading this with a near-limerick rythym...

It nearly is a limerick
But it never was a lark
This here is a poem
Not a walk in the park

Thank you, fellow travelers.

P.S. Yeah, it sounds like a limerick to me, too.

Tale of the South
The sharecropper sneezed
as he rolled up his sleeve.
The witnesses watched smug and glad-
The sharecropper claimed
all the way to his grave
that he was her cousin, not dad!

Just had to add my southern 2 cents, except, I've got the poor guy getting a needle instead of a noose!

thanks for fun here!
best to you-

Ya'll take care, now.

Dirty South Ditty
John- Minimal verbiage/ Maximized punch/ Made for a fully satisfying lunch

Yeah, this had a limerick vibe for me, too. Loved the mess of story packed into a few short lines.
