In time Sparafucile found Rigoletto confining
“An assassin should have more than one victim,”
He would complain. “Granted, I stabbed Gilda
When I meant to kill the Duke, but that
Was entirely her fault – read the libretto!”
He sent feelers out, looking for other work
Asking Lucia why she would want to stab Arturo
And get all covered in blood when he,
Sparafucile, a professional, could do the job
So much more neatly and at a cost
Surprisingly affordable. Waiting her answer
He has moved in with Rodolfo, Marcello,
Colline and Schaunard. He makes them nervous
But pays more than his share of the rent.
Musetta has grown fond of him.
