Cavalcade of Cliché, 26

(A parade of words and phrases eligible for retirement.


So Robin’s wife annoyed him—she
Incessantly just nagged and nagged.
He notched an arrow carefully …
She should’ve zigged; instead she zagged.

So Mrs. Hood is now no more,
And Robin Hood is on the run.
And not that we are keeping score,
But bullseye! (This is kind of fun!)

Now let’s agree that murder’s bad—
Uxoricide, a heinous crime.
But Robin was a hood—a cad.
And hoods will kill you, every time.
