Couples Therapy


You got your way; I got mine!
But you get your way all the time!
Hey, you got your way; I got mine!
But you get YOUR way all the TIME! !
So you finally admit my way is better.
Oh how cute, you think you're clever.
Hey, you got your way; I got... ouch!
Doctor, do we have to sit on the same couch?

    at first i thought you and DOCTOR were sitting on the same couch. but then i remembered the title. my first thought was incorrect, correct? ? i liked the use of words with all capital letters for emphasis. i use that method sometimes, so it MUST be BRILLIANT! and i would put damn in front of couch. ouch! thanks for sharing. ok, another one to MyPoemList. you may be becoming one of my favorite north american ph poets! ! hell, in all the world. remind me when there is a poem you would like me to have the honor of reading. i may forget to visit you otherwise. sorry! getting old, but still busy. bri :) (Report) Reply

Over the woodlands brown and bare,
Over the harvest-fields forsaken,
Silent, and soft, and slow
