A Message to Newly-Married Men

A Message to Newly-Married Men

By Elton Camp

Okay, fellows, you better not dare
This poem, with your wife, to share

But if a woman reads it anyway,
“That’s right,” she will surely say

A wife will act nice for a year or two
After that, the honeymoon is through

Things will, by then, start to get rough
As her Mother said, you aren’t good enough

Your spouse will have come to expect
Your words and actions she must correct

With a clod like you, she doesn’t belong
For you are most consistently wrong 

But she’ll probably tolerate you anyway
Because it’s easier just to let you stay

Young men, my words you’d better fear
It’s the voice of experience speaking here
