Plucking Up Courage

I'm not sure I'd encountered the word pother before, but it's meaning is perfectly apparent from the absolute flap doodle that this suitor is in as he contemplates asking for the hand of the one he loves. And yes, there's an amusing little twist to end proceedings.

Funny Poems about Engagements



He was in such a pother
Such was the lot of the suitor
For he was to ask for his lady’s hand
Well that was what he had planned
But he was in such a nervous state
He couldn’t get his head straight
He was sure she would be receptive
But signs can be deceptive
So he resolved to do what was planned
And ask for his lady’s hand
Although to be perfectly fair
He was more interested in the rest of her
