Rewriting history?

The second in a series of regular poetic reviews of Erinsborough’s Ramsay Street – this one prompted by two October webisodes

Oh Paul, oh Paul, what have you done?
You’ve changed the lives of everyone
Who ever lived in Ramsay Street
(And those who died there too).
Did you correct your past mistakes
By going back to do re-takes?
And have you altered history?
What are you going to do?

Oh Paul, oh Paul, the ‘old’ Terese
Has rather different, common ways,
She’s not the classy lady that
You tried to prise from Gary.
And as your past comes back to haunt,
You’re looking spooked, and pale, and gaunt
When you meet your kids and find
That two of them decide to marry!

Is this surreal experience a lesson learnt?
We’re in suspense,
And did you still burn Lassiter’s
And marry Gail? Do tell!
And what about the other wives?
(You’ve had a few in your past lives!)
And did your nephew still get trapped
With Immy, down a well?

We have so many questions, Paul
And we want answers to them all.
But mostly we all want to know
The Blue Box secrets please!
We know there is a nurse’s dress.
The rest we’re always trying to guess.
Don’t keep us in suspenders with
A cryptic, crafty tease.

What will your next adventure be?
We really cannot wait to see.
Will you meet Harold, Madge and
Mrs Mangel on the way?
Perhaps a twin who’s named Alessi?
Careful Paul, this could get messy.
We’re not sure this time hop really
Makes a better day!
