A Divorce Pending Always - Poem by Raj Arumugam

“I want a divorce, ”
she said
“You want one?
I want one too! ”
he said
“Agreed then? ” she said
“Well, two can play the game, ”
he said
“Agreed then? ” she said
“Well, at least there’s one thing
we’re agreed on, ”
he said

“But still, ” she said
“there’s the property
and the children and the savings
and –“
“Damn right, you are! ”
he said
“You can have the children and the house
and I’ll have all the money, ” he said
And so they started
arguing about who was to have what
and so their marriage continued in disagreement
for another 50 years
a divorce pending always
