A Simple man and A Fed up wife

A Simple man
     I like gosling
     I like gander
     But you feed me salamander
     I like chicken
     I like turkey
     But you serve me gecko jerky
     Where'd you get your recipes
     I bet they're all from overseas
     I wish I'd known before we wed
     What foul foods that I'd be fed

A Fed up wife
     I know that you hate salamander
     And gecko meat for your provender
     But without income it's quite hard
     To shop for food past our front yard
     If on this grub you're sick of dining
     GET A JOB!
     Just stop your whining!

    This was a very early style of mine. I wrote this many years ago. I almost didn't post it. And what I did post was the abridged version. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I may have to post some more of my other early works.

    Thank you. This poem is an earlier poem of mine. I've posted most of my favorites already. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I almost didn't post it. Maybe I should throw caution to the wind and post some more of my early works. Or maybe not!
