Are You A Good Husband?

Rating: 4.4

All married men want to be called a good husband
A good husband is a decent husband
Mr. Husband what you done to deserve this decency?
Has your wife ever referred to you as her good husband?
It is known that the eyes cannot see itself
Unless by reflection. Have you ever asked
Your wife for a performance appraisal
Honey, how did I perform last year?
On a scale of one to ten, one for very poor
Ten for excellent, how did I perform?

Your wife may think you are now on new drugs

my wife (my fourth) would probably rather have YOU for her husband! ! are YOU married? i sense from the manner of some of your writing that you are or were once not an american. am i correct? i really enjoyed this except that i don't like being reminded of what my wife regrets about me.....mainly that i don't treat her as my lover....anymore at least. but i don't treat anyone ELSE that way either. that should count for something! thanks for sharing sir.
