A Taliban Marriage

A Taliban Marriage

By Elton Camp

Afreet, finding his marriage was increasingly grim
Located a marriage counselor & took his wife to him

“This woman is ungrateful for all the good I do for her.
That she might kill me why I sleep actually did occur.”

“For her good, our marriage was arranged by force.
But this vixen has no appreciation for that, of course.”

“I require that she wear the burqa anytime she goes out
For the face of a woman is what corruption is all about.”

“When the laws of the Taliban she outrageously violated,
I had her severely flogged until her evil acts she hated.”

“With unrelated men, I have allowed her no association
So that she is kindly spared the temptation of flirtation.”

“To wear those high-heeled shoes my wife never must
The sound of a woman’s footsteps cause a man to lust.”

“When in public, for her to speak softly is my choice
Because no stranger should ever hear a woman’s voice.”

“So, marriage counselor, I now make this request of you
What, with this rebellious wife, do you suggest I do?”

“Brother, with this female you’ve done all you could
So now, to have her stoned is exactly what you should.”
