How much do I love thee
Let me tabulate all the ways

I bought you a new Mercedes
	With gold plated tire rims
I bought you a humongous diamond ring
	The size fit for all Royals and King
I bought you a store of the finest lingerie
	Secrets still held at the door by decree
I bought you a garden of roses so red
	My love was surely in bloom, or so they all said
I bought you a ticket to heavens pearly gates
	So that in paradise you’d have not to even wait
I bought you your very own private Lear jet
	To see the world through champagne eyes
My love was a vault and you emptied it dry
	My heart has now learned to never cry

How much do you love me?
Your lawyer seems to know

You claimed mental duress
	Suffering under such stress
The Mercedes was the wrong color so I am told	
	I should have known, pink, not gold
The diamond ring was too heavy to wear
	Your back injuries caused you painful despair
The lingerie didn’t cover you just right
	So medical ailments kept you up many a nights
The roses in bloom where not the right flower
	Your allergies they caused, thus making you sour
The ticket to heaven you plain out refused
	Said it was one way, and that just wouldn’t do!
You had no issues riding my Lear jet 
	You rode the pilot as well, a mile high kinda bet
My love you tossed into the bin out in back
	The divorce lawyer smiles at me, saying she sure is great in the sack 

The moral of the Story is this!
If you are sitting at the table, and
You see a few beetles scurrying about
Maybe even whistling a tune or two
Listen carefully to what they say

He gave her all those presents,but all the way all She ever wanted was a bit of his time,a bit of his listening,and a bit of his heart.On te other hand He gave her all He had and yet She couldnt see He gave all that He earned to her,yet She didnt appreciate it enough.So many couples have such misunderstandings that lead to divorce.The lesson from your poem-More communication and all cards on the table..More honesty about what and how We feel.An amazing post.To my favs.

Thanks Charma, although a serious side, I was poking fun at "gold diggers"

Whoa...took me this long, still can't guess the song! Maybe I've been listening to the wrong tune all along...Loved your acerbic wit, as usual! A 7 is no longer unusual...:)
