Necessities - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

My life is almost a poem
and she grumbles' you quit your bounden duties'
Then I say ' I am a river please do not try to stop my constant flow'
She cries 'you praised other women at least a single line of me'
'I am sorry I feel your pain and I know that you are burning in the kitchen
in lifetime.
I am sure that I can sell this poem and bring you a chinese meal, do not cook tonight, will buy something for our children too.
Believe me I love you so much and never betray you.'
