In My Opinion

It's all a matter of opinion
We all have one of these
We always have something to say
Even if no one else agrees

My wife says I don't have one
I have to ask her what to say
She thinks I'll say something stupid
She says, "You're  just made that way"

If we go to a fancy restaurant
She orders what food we'll eat
She tells me when I'm finished
And when to leave my seat

Even on our wedding day
Before I could say, "I do"
She told the preacher, "Of course, he does"
So I just mumbled, "True"

If it sounds like I am henpecked
My wife says that's not true
She says to tell you, "You're all wrong"
She doesn't tell me what to do

So be glad you're not in my shoes
A man who lives this way
The only words I'm allowed to utter
Is, "Yes dear whatever you say"

Well, I think I'll end this poem 
And try to get on with my life
But before I go, I want you to know
I probably better ask my wife

    A riot, Larry. LOL. In my opinion this doesn't apply to me, so I've been told. If you get a chance, read my about my "Nightmare" in my poem "You Ain't No Boss of Me". But be sure to check with you-know-who before you do! Best to you. Ralph
