Jack And Jill: The Final Chapter
Jack and Jill never learned their lesson.
Jack fell down and broke his crown three more times,
the final mishap resulting in serious injuries
from which he never recovered,
despite a courageous battle
and his family doctor's heroic efforts.
Jill, heartbroken and spent,
suffered from chronic injuries sustained
when she went tumbling after.
She lived the rest of her life
in relative seclusion.
At her request,
her ashes were scattered on the hill.
