“THIS CAN SAVE YOUR MARRIAGE.” a poem 1 December 2019 (Sunday)
“NOTHING can save this marriage; it’s DOOMED to fall apart.
Why’d we even get married? It was doom ED from the start.
Nothing can save this marriage. It will forGod’sSAKE surely fail;
Doomed. NothingCanSAVEit. NotEvenTHE HOLY GRAIL.
The glamour and romance? It’s disappeared, and myHeart’sReeling.”
(Pause. Take a breath. Breathe, Children. Well, here it is:)
THE ONLY THING THAT CAN SAVE A N Y MARRIAGE? is
The conviction that:
IT DON’T NEED NO “SAVING.” It’s flourishing and fat;
It’s a done deal AND PERFECT.
“I just GLORY in YOU;
I’m SO HAPPY every day; the ONLY THING that can make me blue,
Is YOU SWEETIE constantly saying: ‘It’s DOOMED; what a marriage.
I was EXPECTING MOREroses and a horse driven carriage.’
YET ALL WOMAN DO THIS. L. O. L. Get the gist?
They just LOVE so TO WORRY. It’s at the top o’ their list,
Of all time favorite things thatTheyGetToOverthinkABOUT y’know: “to do;”
To be saying this stuff in your ear. And (guys) IT’S NOTHING NEW.”
So, IF YOU REALIZE YOU DON’T REALLY NEED SAVING,
It’s kinda like in Christianity. YouCANtell: The pastors are JUST RAVING,
Saying: “Y’all NEED SAVING.” and “Little Colt’s” in the pew in the back,
HeMutters: “From what? & that’sYOURopinion,” and each pastor’s got the knack,
Having been programmed (like your wife) to BELIEVE SOMETHING’S WRONG,
When your marriage AND YOU are both pretty dang strong.
SO, IF YOU WANNA SAVE SOMETHING, JUST STOP “clownin’ around,”
SomePeopleAREjust PRETTY (YOUknow) “tightly wound.”
