Nude In The Mirror! - Poem by Robert Edgar Burns
She was nude looking in the mirror,
In the master bedroom of our home.
She did not appear to be happy,
But I was, Hey, she was nude!
She turns to look at me, her husband,
Of four decades from the past.
She started to speak to me in disgust.
Something unpleasant was happening fast.
“I look horribly ugly, old and fat! ”
These words were spewed from her mouth.
If this conversation continued for long,
I knew it would be heading straight south!
“I need you to compliment me my dear”
“For my ego is down in the dumps! ”
I said “Your eyesight is nearly perfect,
And that fat’s only in your rump! ”
I looked at a glass in the homeless camp
To see if I could start a fire!
I’ll answer no questions of anyone,
To stay out of future quagmire’s!
BET IT WAS THE TITLE THAT
GRABBED YA, HUH!
