David Lessard


Super odd.


Your back, just like a habit,
that I've tried years to stop;
you weren't content beneath me,
you wanted on the top.

To wear the pants and strut,
to have the final say;
but every time you talked,
your foot got in the way.

I was happy when you left me,
the stress of you was gone;
the bickering, the quarrels,
they just went on and on and on.

Without you, I had peace,
now you come groaning back;
cut out the whining wails,
and please, cut me some slack.

There can't be two alpha males,
forget it, your a broad!
and two similar attractions,
can make one super odd.

    Perfection. You have captured the personality of these folks that can't help themselves from trying to control others. Interestingly, it is their own insecurity causing them to do this. (Report) Reply

    Haha! Love this captivating and thoroughly humorous poem! Kudos to you David! (Works both ways which is why I made the decision long ago to remain single!) (Report) Reply
