The Millionaire’s Romance

From The Topeka State Journal, November 26, 1913. By Roy K. Moulton.

Gas turned low,
    They confess
Their romance.
    She says Yes,
Date is named,
    Cards sent out.
Soon they’re on
    Marriage route.
Friends all say,
    “Dandy match,
She’s a queen,
    He’s a ‘catch.’”
Thing’s all right
    For a while.
He’s for clubs,
    She’s for style.
Chorus girl
    Soon he sees,
Sends her flowers
    Just to please.
Wife finds out,
    Doesn’t care;
Goes abroad
Lawyer starts
    Then, of course,
Wife’s suit
    For divorce.
Husband fails
    To appear
In the court
    Or come near.
Get divorce
    Without a flaw;
They both yell,
    “Hip Hurrah.”
    Paid each week.
Now they’re friends,
    So they speak.
