The Untamable Shrew

(This is meant as sort of a counterpoint to all the mushy sentiment of "Valentine Day.")

The Untamable Shrew

By Elton Camp

It’s ever harsh words and criticize
Always excused by endless lies

All he says and does is wrong
Every day the same old song

With outrage, she will say
“Why do YOU do this way!”

For him, it’s to be expected
Every word will be corrected

All decisions are her domain
His views, she will disdain

Whether a matter great or small
She has her way, on them all 

Half a sentence he may get out
Before she interrupts with a shout

Daily misery is to be his life
Filled with unending strife
