Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
Marriage Changes Things
You will never be faithful!
How do I know that?
First of all,
My name is not Brandon.
And those argyle sox,
You said I left the other night...
I may be forgetful...
I did not leave suspenders
In your bathroom last week!
I do wear Old Spice.
But I certainly wouldn't put it
Under the sofa!
These are just but hints...
That you could not be faithful to me!
You say marriage changes things?
It appears you have assisted and allowed...
Many of those changes to occur in here,
