Best bib and tucker was his look
He’d read all the fashion books
Trying to make the best impression
Even went to a charm school session
Joe was enamored well
Saw a girl, it was an instant spell
When he saw her his heart swelled
A beauty, and her name was Belle.
Belle was from a societal peak
Where Joe’s position was rather bleak
Skipping over his low agnation
Wanted to act above his station
No one but Joe thought this was needed
Even Belle, if she had been heeded
Joe approached coiffed with cravat on chest
And hoping that Belle would be impressed.
