The Advantages Of A Pretty Wife - Poem by David McLansky

-->

Are far out weighed by social strife,
Cablemen at my front door
Immigrants from distant shores,
Dare to stand in open wonder
Makes me quake with distant thunder;
Verizon trucks parked in my driveway.
Repairmen edging up, and sideways,

Their hungry looks make me nervous;
And it’s just the same when we go out,
Strangers follow us about
Who eye her body with open joy,
Would I were gay and she a boy;
