A Dog For a Wife


A Dog For A Wife

I got my husband a dog,

he always wanted one,

I’m demeaning and opinionated

The dog is friendly and unassuming.

I yell,

the dog yields happily

and asks for more.


the dog doesn’t go shopping,

picks up the phone

or drives to appointments,

My husband will have to do all that,

I’m done,

the keys are under the doormat.
