In one of her famous replies,
His wife didn’t like his sighs…
While he began seething
She claimed that his breathing
Overrode hearing her cries.
She asked for fig newtons last night
But he brought home treats hard-to-bite…
He denied her asking,
She took him to tasking
For not hearing anything right!
At the time he was rather put out
That he scowled and put on a pout
And sighed, one more thing
She wants me to bring
And remember when I’m out.
When he got to the store that night
He couldn’t remember in spite
Of her loving reminders
As if he had blinders,
He went through and bought what he might.
So today she objects to his sighs
And says she wants him other-wise…
How to explain
The paycheck’s the same,
That’s what his frustration belies.
