Man Is A Slave Of Hunger And Thirst - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

No efforts are needed, no favors are required,
The day is passed in fatigues of life,
But to pass a night in a pleasant way,
Much work is needed to please a wife!

Tolerance is needed to remain silent,
When a foolish boss in the office dictates,
He thinks he is master of noting and drafting,
Spoils my draft and a beauty underrates!

Tolerance is needed to be calm and quiet,
When a fatty old woman on the bed dictates,
She thinks she is still a queen of beauty,
Spoils the passion and her beauty over rates!

Still I love both my boss and my wife,
He gives me a handsome salary, every first,
She has been pleasing for decades of life,
Man is a slave of hunger and thirst!

    i don't really get the title/last line. hunger and thirst for what? food and drink? love and respect? sex and money?

    or all of the above? ? ?

    you have experienced a lot, and appear to be wise. it is just 'old age'!

    i like it, but i almost asked if the woman on the bed is also your wife; i guess you answered that?
