Wisdom T. Petterpuck, Colonel of note,
Felt that women should not have the vote.
His good wife Hermione, differed on this,
And let him know firmly his view was a miss!
Flustered and blustered the Colonel blushed
As one by one, his opinions were crushed.
He'd fought in great battles his bravery well known,
His valor and chivalry unquestioned by none.
But Hermione was a challenge, he ne'er faced before
And clearly Colonel Petterpuck didn't know the score,
By the end of the round she'd won fair and square,
He was roundly defeated, an event oh so rare.
Wisdom by name and by nature was learned,
Silence at home, his peace was then earned.
Whilst Hermione ruled, his position was clear
His role was to answer, "Of course, my dear!"
When the Colonel finally passed on from life,
He parted at rest, well at least from his wife,
And as he sat on his cloud in the sky,
He prayed that his wife would never die.
