The Last Resort by Halpin

A dramatist declared he had got
So many people in his plot,
That what to do with half he had
Was like to drive him drama-mad!
“The hero and the heroine
Of course are married–very fine!
But with the others, what to do
Is more than I can tell–can you?”
His friend replied–“‘Tis hard to say,
But yet I think there is a way.
The married couple, thank their stars
And half the ‘others’ take the cars,
The other half you put on board
An Erie steamboat–take my word,
They’ll never trouble you again!”
The dramatist resumed his pen.
