On a bright Melbourne day, in a suburb we know,
Came a magical time in our favourite show.
Where Aaron and David were married at last;
An occasion much longed for by viewer and cast.
In typical fashion, there came a few glitches.
But we all adore Neighbours for farcical hitches.
Wherever was Susan our celebrant, sweet,
Our own goody-two-shoes and queen of the street?
She raced to get back but she found to her ire
They’d replaced her, as time was going down to the wire.
‘I’m here now!’ cried Susan, determined and gritty.
But Jemima just sniggered and answered, ‘Tough titty!’
She butchered the speech and she made it her own,
The other guests laughed, Susan’s face was like stone.
Poor Aaron was pained but he’d strutted up aisle,
His bad back forgotten, for his husband, a smile.
Then a beautiful touch brought a rainfall of tears.
With Scott and Charlene, we all rolled back the years.
And, during reception, two guests crept away
To give in to their passions. Terese! Ooh I say!
With feathers in hair, they crept back just in time
For the most slushy toasts (though, thank god, not in rhyme!)
But Susan was still in an unfriendly state.
It should have been her speech, it would have been great!
And now there was dog shit to cap a bad day.
I mean, what other horrors could be coming her way?
The old banger crumbled as Suze scraped her shoe,
And then came Jemima. Oh what a to-do!
Oh heavens, poor Susan’s day wasn’t going well.
She’d just met Karl’s sister – the sister from hell!
And wouldn’t you know it, she’s homeless and broke.
And Karl is well known as a gullible bloke.
But let’s not digress from the sweet tale we saw.
So tender, so happy, emotion so raw.
When history was made and with not one dry eye,
A rainbow of love graced the Erinsborough sky.
