Every one of us has, in acquaintance,
the typical 'tragedy queen';
no soul suffers more,
is so grievously treated
or has been through the troubles she's seen.
To those who will take time to listen,
to many who would prefer not;
she pours out her heart
with crocodile tears,
often tantrums and loses the plot.
Madeline, once friend and colleague
is happily married, here's how...
her husband, quite deaf,
turns off hearing device,
then her tirade will, smiling, allow.
