Biggest Bigamist

Rating: 5.0
To dream the impossible dream,
Keep your distance, if you know what I mean,
To have multiple Queens wearing multiple crowns,
Your multiple wives in multiple towns.

I love my wives, they love me too,
But they don't know about things that I do,
I have a sweet tooth, I think women are wine,
So to get my sugar, as the marrying kind.

I got a wife in Alabama, her father's a baker,
I got one in Ohio, who don't know I'm a faker,
I got one in Hawaii, we have a family of three,
She has no clue what's going on with me.

I got one in Minnesota, we live on a lake,
I got one in Nevada, who don't know I'm a fake,
I got one in Utah, we both love to ski,
She reminds me of my wife in Mississippi.

It gets a little dicey on major holidays,
I have to lie a lot and make a few plays,
I tell 'em, I got business that takes me out of town,
But when I get back, I'll make it up somehow.

I have wives of every race, every color and creed,
In their totality, they give me what I need,
I got a wife in Oklahoma, she loves to ride the range,
I'm having so much fun, I don't think I'll ever change.

One wife can be very stressful, two or more can be potentially disastrous. Where I come from in Africa, a distant relative is married to twelve wives and they all live in the same premises (compound) with children - of course the family is like a war zone. Polygamy/bigamy is not a criminal offense, in fact it's a mark of man's affluence. I like your poem, very insightful and nicely brought forth in good rhyme scheme. Tanks for sharing Richard.
