Is It A Trait Of Men? ? .. [men Upsetting Women (Wives) : Humor? ] - Poem by Bri Edwards

What have I done today....
to make my wife upset?
It wasn't very much,
but troubled she did get.
.... guess I have the knack
to make my Love's eyes wet.

I walked to the mailbox.
I moved a flower pot.
I trimmed my toenails, ....
and to do so, I did squat.

Yes, I have hurting hips, ....
but only now and then.
If I don't do chores NOW,
tell me, won't you, WHEN?
ok! Call my stubborn;
it is a trait of MEN.

NOW she serves me supper.
Are my sins forgiven?
The day was not so bad;
more trouble I have been in.
But SHE may think it "time" ……
time I end my sinnin'.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

oh yeah. i almost forgot the 'story'. there is not much to say is

there? men are thoughtless, cruel, and difficult, if not impossible,

for women to rule matter how hard the women try! i

have to be a MAN once in a while. so i may lift something heavier

than she thinks i should, or use body mechanics she thinks are
unhealthy. what? does she want me to live forever? ?

p.s. my PH friend John Westlake found a typo! : ( i had typed 'call my stubborn'. it should now be corrected to 'call me stubborn'!
OOPS! ! she is behind me reading this! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! OUCH! I'M SORRY DEAR. REALLY.

    Some women don't want you to live forever, they EXPECT you to. Men are men and will always be so and women must live with it and love you for it. ok! Call my stubborn? ? Do you not mean Call me stubborn? ? (Report) Reply

    This is fun.
    Yes men, and what they do are sometimes annoying.
    But since women love them
    they will be forgiven for as long as love is shared between them.
    Very nice poem. (Report) Reply
