The Advantages Of A Pretty Wife - Poem by David McLansky

Are far out weighed by social strife,
Cablemen at my front door
Immigrants from distant shores,
Dare to stand in open wonder
Makes me quake with distant thunder;
Verizon trucks parked in my driveway.
Repairmen edging up, and sideways,
I tell them I don’t subscribe their service,
Their hungry looks make me nervous;
And it’s just the same when we go out,
Strangers follow us about
Who eye her body with open joy,
Would I were gay and she a boy;
