Nag Nag Nag

God made Adam out of the clay, A friend for walks in the cool of the day. Eden was all that Adam had to tend, But God decided he needed a friend. From Adams rib, God did conceive, A companion for him who He called Eve. How long he walked with God we do not know, But it was a good life without sorrow. But this all came to an abrupt end, On that morning Eve he did comprehend. For from the moment she was activated, Adam's life was aggravated. Each day became an infernal drag, Because all she did was NAG, NAG, NAG. The grass is too green, the flowers too bright, And where do you go in the cool of the night? Where do I go when I want a chat? I've got no friends, did you think of that? You've got a job, God did you proud, All I get told is, don't touch that, it's not allowed. I'm going to leave, with nothing to put in a bag. Adam said yes, please go, then no more NAG, NAG, NAG.. © Dave Timperley 2013

A far cry for your poem of love for your wife. Women certainly have their ways but I suppose we do too. But where would we be without them? God created Eve from the side of man, so I guess she is part of who we are, right? Allan

Not a reflection on my beloved Allan, just a bit of tongue in cheek humour. Thanks for stopping by. God Bless. D.
