pulled out a red-rose;
expression of his puppy-love.
Snatched and tossed;
and out through the window;
whattay haughty dame, by jove!
For the passerby,
Of luck from heaven above!

For Trifextra: Week 28th.The challenge as they put it:
On to Trifextra, where this weekend we’re borrowing from the musical world. Noted blues musician, Lead Belly, was quoted in Three Uses of the Knife by David Mamet as saying:
You take a knife, you use it to cut the bread, so you’ll have strength to work; you use it to shave, so you’ll look nice for your lover; on discovering her with another, you use it to cut out her lying heart.
Give us 33 words (exactly) that tell us three different uses for one object. Tell us a story, like Lead Belly did, if you can. It won’t be easy, but you guys are far beyond needing easy prompts.
