Just to point out that the article on "brass ring" omitted the information that most of the rings in the dispenser were steel or iron. So simply catching a ring did not win a prize, unless the brass ring was the one being offered. Friends of mine learned to pull several rings in succession, in one pass, in case the brass was next or even two or three after the one visible. The ride operator could also swing the dispenser arm back so no rings were offered for a time, and no chance for a brass ring at all.

The marriage licence in fainted copperplate handwriting could not save her from acknowledging that he'd been just a tin god who never won the brass ring and the iron curtain that separated their once united hearts had no silver lining.

(and ain't it sad .... frown smile)

A tall marble monument marked the grave
Of one who'd been fashion's queen;
And I thought, "She is happier here at rest,
Than to have people say when seen:"

"She's only a bird in a gilded cage,
A beautiful sight to see.
You may think she's happy and free from care,
She's not, though she seems to be ..."

The flagitious couple embarked on a spree of crime unchecked by the thewless forces of the law, he aping the manners of the flaneur, she those of the prima donna, and for villainous intent, neither would be proved a cunctator.

"She's sad when she thinks of her wasted life,
For Youth cannot live with Age,
Her beauty was sold
For a Rich man's gold;
She's a bird in a gilded cage."

Ha, a combined cheerful laugh intermezzo of lovely poetry. I'm behind with even reading last weeks words. There's too much to do. So Blither, thanks for the sentence ( always giving me the advantage of having an examplary example). Hope to make it before midweek.
