The Trouble With Husbands Is…

Share the Love

Man Wife and Dog on Untypically JiaToday I’m honored to be the guest blogger over on one of my favorite wife blogs, Untypically Jia – great stuff – and I thought I’d give you girls a little preview of what’s going on over there.

Today I’d like to share a poem I wrote about my husband. Now, keep in mind that I’m an artist, and I’m sensitive about my shit. Just kidding! (I’m a huge Erykah Badu fan…) It’s actually the first poem I’ve written in almost 11 years so bare with me. I don’t know what compelled me to write it – okay, I’m lying, yes I do – I wrote this out of frustration…you’ll see why. Ahem…okay, here goes…it’s called If Only the Wok Weren’t So New.

If Only the Wok Weren’t So New

Another long day has come to an end,
Normally I’d be thrilled to see you,
But I’m not this time,
For you overslept and forgot to pick me up again.
I come home to find you asleep on the couch.
Normally I would give you a pass,
But I’m not this time,
for I’ve also come home to a messy house.

I’m so mad I just want to throw something at you.
Normally I wouldn’t be,
But this is the third time,
Sigh…if only the Wok weren’t so new.

I try and try to wake you to no avail,
Normally I’d let you sleep,
But no not this time,
I’d much rather give you hell.

Are those your pants on the floor by the door?
Normally I’d pick them up,
But I’m not gonna this time,
I’d much rather find a way to even the score.

I’m so mad I just want to throw something at you.
Normally I wouldn’t be,
But you leave them every time,
Sigh…if only the Wok weren’t so new.
