Pat and Mike would sit and rock
Cause their time was off the clock.
So they talked of mundane things
Like breakfast cereal and wedding rings.

Pat discussed each ache and pain,
While Mike talked about the rain.
Their conversations got so droll
The three blind mice stayed in their hole.

Both were nice and quite adoring
But their talks had gotten boring.
They spoke of all of their pet peeves
Until the table dropped its leaves.

Until the old grandfather clock
Missed a tick and skipped a tock.
Until the icebox lost its cool
And fell on top the three-leg stool.

The stove stomped out and slammed the door,
It said that it could take no more.
Mike asked Pat, What was that about?
Pat responded, The fire went out!
