There once was a beautiful wife
She lived with a passion for life
But her passion was waning.

The tension now cuts with a knife

    An insightful portrayal of a marital bliss entangled in creeping domination and control. A beautiful limerick. Thanks for sharing Elisabeth and do remain enriched. (Report) Reply

    So you speak for all men now?
    Is that what I'm hearing?
    By the way your nose hair could use a good shearing
    You say that beauty is skin deep, indeed
    But a woman still wants her knight on a steed
    You put ice in your scotch?
    No thanks, I'll have mine neat
    Your sock drawers nearly empty? Put in a load
    If you recall, the machine is covered in mold
    I'll do what ever I choose!
    You can polish your own damn shoes
    Hearing It's that time of the monthor I've a headache make you sore?
    Satisfy your woman and she'll come back for more
    Women also work 9-5
    But, the question is not. What the hell gives?
    The question is, For whom does she live

    Lisa, i'm loving this poem from you, BUT here is from The Man's side:

    What Men Want In A Wife ......[a man's view; inspired by Elisabeth Wingle's Marriage Bliss; humor? ; marriage disturbances; SHORT]

    Beauty, skin-deep, is not all that men need.
    [We won't reject a beauty. No, ma'am, indeed....,
    BUT] YOU must have a few other qualities 'so nice',
    e.g. Bring another Scotch, dear, this time with more ice!

    And: My sock drawer's nearly empty. Put in a load.
    The washing is overdue! Don't Make Me, you, Scold!

    And: When was the last time, Dear, you polished my shoes?
    Do you think you can decide to do whatever you damn choose? !

    And: I don't want to hear 'it's my time of the month' or 'a headache' anymore.
    AND when was the last time you vacuumed and polished the WHOLE kitchen floor?

    Men to Women: It may seem the list is endless......., and so what if it is?
    We men work hard,9-5. How 'bout YOU, girls? Tell us: 'what the Hell gives? '
