This doggerel, I'm sorry to say, is original with me. O.J. Simpson bought a knife And turned it on his second wife; Then told her, as the blade withdrew, "Your waiter will be right with you." I have no idea if it's true of not, but I like the way it scans. For non-U.S. readers: one of the most notorious crimes of the last century was the violent murder of the parents of Miss Lizzie Borden. Lizzie was acquitted, but hounded ever after by the children's rhyme, Lizzie Borden took an axe And gave her mother forty whacks; And when she saw what she had done, She gave her father forty-one.
