"Divorce" - A Poem from Words & Swords, Marriage & Family
Tomatoes don't belong in the refrigerator;
I did it again.
My wife may never forgive me;
our marriage is on the rocks.
I snore, put tomatoes in the fridge,
walk and eat too fast.
The divorce lawyer doesn't know how
to help us reach a valid settlement for my cruelty.
He suggests we try to work it out,
give love a chance,
and don't put tomatoes in the fridge.
I read his settlement to my wife;
she laughs.
I love her when she laughs,
and forget the difficult times.
We fire the lawyer
and take the tomatoes out of the fridge.
