that little talk about a wedding


my wife has this to say
on your wedding day, that i must not speak
about statistics

majority of which
marriages are shattered
how the man has not coped up
with the heavy responsibilities
how the woman cannot accept
the hidden facts

and so i will speak of bliss
of sweet honey and wine
of the miracle at Cana
and everything so divine

my wife is happy now
having looked at the icing of the cake
licked the rosy part
and swallowed the cherry
on her drink

on the other hand she is right
optimism is still the right trait
to keep a marriage bond intact
