The Dutiful Husband

The Dutiful Husband...

Comes home from work
all fires are out with only a squirt.
A quiet evening he looks forward to,
just Bill O'Reilly, a glass of wine will do.

His loyal wife - some news she has,
The Dryer - it's broke - I'm lost
she cries.

With bulging eyes and clenched white fists, he calmly says:
Put It On My List

She paces and paces and gives a shrill,
till finally she wins over dear ole Bill.

The dryer is dragged from its' lint filled nitch,
unscrewed in places where only midgets could fit.
Adjectives fly from this wine filled mouth
WHERE'S MY TOOLS he says with a shout.

Hours pass, parts askew, sweat on his brow ;
(Oh more wine will do!)
FORGET IT he says
OUT IS GOES
'GET MY MONEY, WE'RE GOING TO LOWES.

Thank You Dear!!!

Thank you so much for this poem. I will send it to my husband too. He is always there for me. Very gentle, kind and caring. I always admire stare at him whenever he is sleeping and I will say to myself "poor man he spent whole day out looking for a living for the kids and I. I really love him so much.
