(marriage) Equality..... [see The Title; Personal Fantasy; Humor? (Let Me Know) ] - Poem by Bri Edwards

I’m an American. So you know I KNOW about equality, right?
And I’m married. I strive for spousal equality with all my might!
Let me share with you how I help to keep my marriage EQUAL.
I’m so good at it that this is my 3rd marriage sequel.

[My wife’s a good wife, and so she does her fair share..... of the house work.
I’m a good husband, and I’m no slacker. Oh, NO! From MY chores I do not shirk.]

My wife makes our bed. I mess it up.
She washes plates and bowls. I wash my cup.
She washes our clothes. I say “Nice job.”
She hangs them on line. I tell her 'They’re dry.' I’m NO SLOB! ..... Oh, NO!

She cooks supper, though it’s sometimes late.
I eat every meal and even lick my plate.... and hers.
I turn on lawn sprinkler and she mows the lawn.....
though, to do so, she starts mowing at the crack of dawn......
(and wakes ME up!) .

The problem is she has a full-time job...... at a bank.
I have no “OUTSIDE” job. At regular jobs I stank.
But I’m glad that at home I can, and do, do my part.
I don’t, like SOME BUMS,.... just sit at home and fart.

    I hope your back is not aching from all the hard work done
    From my point of view you are a husband second to none
    Unfortunately the ladies might not agree with me
    In their opinion you are just another bum you see
    thanks for the fun Bri

    Oh, yes! you are a loose cannon. What a relief to find someone else who is prepared to express an opinion and not be overly bound by politically correct I too am non-religious. I have been lucky enough in my 85 years to not need
    formal religion to lean on. and also found that girl at 19 and she is still with me. Divorce? never. Murder? from time to time. My kids and grandchildren are pretty straight with no drinking or drug problems which I understand is not all that normal these days. Please rate my poems even if it is a one I have had only ten ratings on the 112 that I have put up so far and it leaves me even more clueless than normal. I'll go check out some more of your stuff, now. I went after a pretentious twit that was telling us what Carryl really meant in his Robinson Crusoe Story (a personal favourite of mine) I am bracing myself for a tirade because I told him he was making himself look foolish and should shush. (Don't laugh .. although I already know you will.) 09

    I'm no slouch Bri, I do my own cooking cleaning and laundry. Still, your poem did amuse me so it's fair play. (Report) Reply

    lol this was very funny, I'm very glad my fiance is nothing like this, we do share everything equally. It's hard to believe there are really men like this but I've hear of some, it's very sad. (Report) Reply

    LOL, funny, and genuine! Since art is seen through the eyes of onlookers-readers in your case. Any case, Marriage Equality provides several perspective of the word Equality Love and enjoy reading your poems] (Report) Reply

    All your poems are hillarious! ! I almost laughted my head off on the last stanza! ! ! (Report) Reply

  • Valsa George (12/2/2013 10:36:00 PM)

    What a hectic schedule, you have as an equal partner ! ! .... So zealously discharging the duties of a fulltime husband! After every meal, since you lick your plate and hers, I see that dish washing is made easier!

    Enjoyed the poem especially the last line! (though a little repulsive) A 10 for this slapstick write! !

    All of your poems have a sense of humor; whether or not you realize it.: D
    I can't really comment on it since, well, I don't exactly understand everything of... uh... married life? Anyways, I had a needed good laugh.
