Here's an Idea

They just don't know how to apologize, do they?
Giving something that's prone to finger bleeds
and even chunkier thighs.
I'll give you the Golden Rule:
with situations like this
it is sure to apply.
An idea I propose (if I may be so bold):
give me a week without seeing your face
and a day without hearing your voice.
Heartbroken women everywhere agree
that it truly is the safest choice!
I don't need a second bouquet
or another box of sweets so chocolatey.
Seeing you suffer for what you did
is without a doubt the greatest therapy!



But of course      Don't despair
Eventually you'll be forgiven
Give it space      Give it time
When you return it will be sublime
a peck on the cheek
"Honey, can you fix the bathroom sink,
it hasn't been greased

... in at least a week."




NOTE: For all you women out there that have to put up with us silly men.

There is indeed sublimity in suffering...therapy is harmony between land and rain. I excel with silliness Timothy...J.A.B.

I think that women mostly just want to be heard and appreciated. Forget being right, no one wins.

Hey Richard ... you always have good advice. This poem is pure fiction, and was just a bit of fun to write.

Why I'm not sure what to say ... thank you! This was a bit of nonsense poem, but I'm glad it inspired some laughs.

But there is a limit to everything, Timothy! This therapy can work both ways. For some men being left out in the cold does not constitute suffering...on the contrary...:) // paul

I did not consider this, Paul, but you are correct ... perhaps it could be an excuse to get a little Me-Time, eh?
