SHHH!

Please don’t tell my hus­band if you want to keep it quiet, For he’s bound to give the game away and cause a ma­jor riot. Please don’t tell my hus­band that he mustn’t spill the beans, Un­less you want your se­cret to be smashed to smithereen­s. Please don’t tell my hus­band to keep his lips shut tight, ’Cos he’ll go out of his way to shout about it left and right. Please don’t tell my hus­band just to get it off your chest; There’s ev­ery chance he’ll get it wrong and then in­vent the rest. Please don’t tell my hus­band not to ruin a sur­prise, As he really can’t be trusted and it really won’t be wise. But lately I have no­ticed that be­fore I’d have re­grets Any­thing I tell him now he promptly just for­gets.

Sue Wrigley, Hyde, Cheshire.
