My Wife And The Other Man - Poem by Michael Shepherd

My wife is having
a relationship with
the bank manager

those extra three inches,
that 20% increase in girth,
those 18 hours of
chemically induced
extended pleasure
come courtesy of

the overdraft sanctioned by
the bank manager whose
smug image comes to mind
at the most ecstatic and
inappropriate moments

    Very unusual style for you. Kind of weird, so I like it. I'll forego the double entendres about deposits, interest, etc. (Report) Reply
