A Redneck Love Poem

This actually did earn a poetry prize in West Virginia in 1912.

Susie Lee done fell in love,
She planned to marry Joe.
She was so happy 'bout it all,
She told her Pappy so.

Pappy told her, Susie gal,
You'll have to find another.
I'd just as soon yo' Ma don't know,
But Joe is yo' half brother.

So Susie put aside her Joe
And planned to marry Will.
But after telling Pappy this,
He said, "There's trouble still."

You can't marry Will, my gal,
And please don't tell yo' Mother.
But Will and Joe, and several mo'
I know is yo' half brother.

But Mama knew and said, my child,
Just do what makes yo' happy.
Marry Will or marry Joe;
You ain't no kin to Pappy.

(Kinda brings a tear to yer eye, don't it!) :lol:

I thought in West Virginia anyone further out the family tree than a fraternal twin was fair game.
