Size Does - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

In a home for battered ones,
run by aseptic looking nuns
rings the wall-mount telephone
hubby wants to pick a bone.

Woman yells leave me alone
keep to yourself your tiny bone.
It never was what I expected
it is the reason I defected.

Hubby looks at his humdinger
it is bigger than a finger.
Tells his mate that life is tough,
girls can never get enough.
