Sixes and Sevens

I am often accused of being prolix
And this is something I intend to fix
By selecting a genre that limits
My stories to a measly word count of six!

Friends, countrymen, gentlemen and the odd lady
Please put your hands together immediately
For the newest beast in the city -
I proudly present The Six Word Story!

'Have money?'
'I love you.'

'I'm ill.'
'I'm dying.'

'Do you know my father?'
'Don't you?'

A long time ago, I died.

Boy met girl. She died. He cried. [Love Story]

'Wish you were here.'
'I don't.'

They're rather irritating to write and I don't have much time anyway.
Also, I can count. I know two of the above are seven words long. So hang me.
