My Wife Just Slipped Out - Poem by John Wright

Cock roaches are crawling-
The children are bawling.
My wife just slipped out the door
Out side it is raining
The neighbors are complaining
The say my wife is a whore.

The house's gone to smelling
And it ain't no telling
When a mop's been put on the floor
And to me it seems funny
My wife's always got money
My wife just slipped out the door.

She comes home at sunrise
But she does apologize
And says she'll not do it no more
The sun is now setting.
The baby is wetting.
My wife just slipped out the door.
