I’ll Be Ready in Five Minutes, Dear

By Elton Camp

Joe threw on his clothes and ready to go
Sue wasn’t nearly as efficient, though

With a closet filled with clothes,
What should she wear of all those?

She wondered what others might have on
It was nearly time they should be gone

“I’ll be ready in five minutes.”

Sue gave her purses a close inspection
Those of the wrong color got rejection

“I’ll be ready in five minutes.”

Then her purse, shoes must match
So she searched through a big batch

“I’ll be ready in five minutes.”

Her hair she provided a finishing touch
The time required shouldn’t be much

“I’ll be ready in five minutes.”

Her make-up had to be just right
Even if the schedule was tight

“I’ll be ready in five minutes.”

Poor Joe stalked out of the room
To go sit on a bench and fume

“I’ll be ready in five minutes.”

Most husbands, to this can relate
For everywhere they will be late
