EX WIFE🙄

“CONTINUING TRADITIONS!” a poem, in a series entitled: “The Expectations Of EXs!” April 30, 2018 – Monday.

Years ago, my bro(ther)-in-law said (pause) That: I-was-“CONTRACTED!”*

I was married, to-his-”sis,” the second time! (re)-enacted?

I looked right-at-him, with-no-surprise,

‘Cause I had LOST – most-ev’ry-”(dis)guise,”

“Yes,” I said (I knew it too);

“I try & try; what can I do?

Your sister’s sexy, but-she-can-burn,

(I knew this from THE FIRST SOJOURN!)

“… and often, often, she’s SO NICE,

I-’specially-love, her-’sugar & spice,’

BUT – pleasant’s got to balance out,

With nasty times, and she CAN pout,

AND – I pout too, but not too much,

OR ELSE – She’ll never – ‘stay-in-touch!’

So, I-suppress-A-LOT, I know –

Out-of-LOVE?!”

“This guy’s A PRO!” Said Her brother, with a grin,

‘Cause-he-knew-”the-state”-I-was-in!

HONEY,

IF-YOU-SUPPRESS-ENOUGH, SOMETIMES YOU MIGHT BLOW;

YOU-CAN-TRY-and-TRY-AND-TRY – TO-SUPPRESS REAL-GOOD, JUST-SO,

AND, IF YOU HOLD “IT” LONG ENOUGH,

YOU’ll SURELY DIE – YOU WILL BE OFF,

THE LIST OF PEOPLE A GIRL CAN USE /

FOR-HER-PURPOSE(S) –

(WELL) YOU-CAN-BOOZE! +

YOU-CAN-ENGAGE A SHRINK OR TWO;

YOU-CAN-CRY AND FEEL REAL-BLUE!

AND, IF YOU’RE LUCKY, YOU’LL FIND A WIFE,

WHO’LL NOT PUSH-(TOO)-FAR – CAUSE TOO-MUCH STRIFE!

BUT THEY ARE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN,

BASED ON WHAT THIS POET’S SEEN! 🙂
