A poor widow's plea
A woman who killed her retired police officer husband has had her legal battle for a widow's pension dismissed by the Court of Appeal.
I suppose she based her argument on Lizzie Borden's plea that she was now an orphan...
(Lizzie was aquitted of the murders though she was followed everywhere by:
Lizzie Borden took an axe
And gave her mother forty whacks.
When she saw what she had done
She gave her father forty-one. )
