The Man of the House

The Man of the House

By Elton Camp

“He who would not be a henpecked fool
Must show his wife that he means to rule”

Tom had heard that saying all his life 
He tried to apply it when he took a wife

He tried the “man of the house” routine,
Running out the back door Tom was seen

Meg had a rolling pin in her hand
“How dare you make such a demand!”

Tom got a large knot on his head
Only a month after he was wed

What might have worked long ago
Made poor Tom have to eat crow
