For Happy Men Only - Poem by Ted Sheridan

You had better tell her....your new lover
before she starts moving in
toothbrush first
then a comb and hair dryer
cause she won't use yours
and next there are
the blouses and the skirts
jeans and pants
shoes and slippers
food in the refrigerator and pots and pans
her spice rack and things all seasoned
with her touch and those fatal words.....
'Well.....We are always together so I just thought
I would destroy what is left
of your miserable life! '

    I didn't like your poem. It's rather a dialog, or a monologue if you will; and I feel sorry for you after reading what you were saying in it. (Report) Reply
