Is It A Trait Of Men? ? .. [Men Upsetting Women (Wives) : Humor? ]


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 completely.....no 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? ?
OOPS! ! she is behind me reading this! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! OUCH! I'M SORRY DEAR. REALLY.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
