Once upon a time in a land not so far away where women glowed and men thundered, two people came together courtesy of an internet dating site.  They seemed very suited to each other and everything was just going along swimmingly as one would expect - I mean to say we know that the wheels don't normally fall off in the first few thousand kilometres, don't we girls?

But then we all seek romance at one time or another,  that everlasting love that we know is going to fill us with happiness and joy until the cows come home.  Some are lucky and they find their perfect match but others...


She was giving up on romance, giving pink champagne the flick
passing on the Strawberry Cheesecake that stacked on kilos so quick.
Life was not a bed of roses but ‘twas rare that she complained,
till one night in heat of passion he called out another’s name.

The silent bell of warning rang a message loud and clear.
It takes two for a relationship, but seems that three were here.
So she gave him marching orders, threw him out upon the road.
She knew it was a fairy tale…Princes don’t come from toads.
