while others think no more of him than the Earth’s clay.

She went on to marry a different man sadly,
a man with enough money to please her everyday.

Rumors have spread of an affair between the two,
for they spend so much time in each other’s way.

The one that is responsible for that poor Myrtle’s death?
Her husband found him and killed him for what he had done,
