PHIL-OSOPHY

De hosts today’s Quadrille #97.  We’re
to feature the word FILL in exactly
44 words.  I took a bit of largess with
the spelling.

**************

Philomena tired of Phillip’s philandering
his forays would fill a book
Phil was a rank philogynist
she was bereft, betrayed, forsook. 
   
Philomena turned to philosophy
sadly her options seemed to be nil
at last she became so desperate
she decided to call Dr. Phil.
