"Bri, Pulling Your Leg"...[ Blessings; Short; Marriage; Bri Edwards' Life So Far; Inspired By Poet Kingsley Egbukole ] - Poem by Bri Edwards

Blessed I am.I know not by Whom...
or What.But ever since from the womb...
I came, I've led a rather contented life.
Of course there HAS been a bit of strife.

That's if you count some sibling fighting,
or wormy candy into which I was biting.
or a poor grade my English teacher gave,
or my first 3 marriages I could not save.

Now I'm blessed with my wife number four.
Once a week she kicks me out the door...,
but she let's me back in [if I grovel and beg].
Don't you go thinking I'm 'pulling your leg'. **

    Bri, as far I understand, is a master at pulling legs. But he is a ' nice' guy, helpful and compassionate. Except for his records of previous broken marriages, he is a happy go lucky man without any guile. He happens to be one of my close friends on PH who has something every time to make others smile! A poem of his usual stuff! (Report)Reply

    I know when my leg is being pulled! ! ! ! It is so painfully clear. I am standing there minding my own business and this joker comes along and sweeps my leg out from under me with a lot of laughter and glee. So far Bri holds the record in leg pulling but Comeuppance is on the way- -loved Kim's comment by the way (Report)Reply

    You are blessed with your wife number four;
    she puts up with your guff and your snore.
    Now, just don’t make her grieve,
    or you’d better believe
    she will show you at once to the door!
