Where You Shoulda Put a Ring

Where You Shoulda Put a Ring


You shoulda put a ring ON it if:

– it was a neatly arranged napkin you wanted to keep that way

– you wanted to give it more “tingle”

– you wanted it to rule them all, find them, bring them all, and in the darkness bind them

– you liked it

You shoulda put a ring IN it if:

– you didn’t want it to produce a fertilized ovum

– it was a ring box

– you wanted to lead it around by the nose

– you liked it

You shoulda put a ring AROUND it if:

– it was a rosie

– it was the moon, and you were a hazy night

– x just isn’t marking the spot

– you were an indigenous Padaung woman, and were decorating it in traditional fashion

– you liked it
