There are women who feel a strong need To nag men until their ears bleed In a war of attrition With relentless petition Is a cruel way to make men concede Men wish for a life of peace But get nagged by a tongue that won't cease Men will just say It's the female DNA That must out in its need for release We can’t help it; we just HAVE to nag Guess some folks would call us 'an old hag' But men get on our nerves When you paw at our curves Men should give up and wave the white flag We can suffer from bad PMT, Become ogres that men want to flee We scream and we shout Say we’ll throw you out But for some reason you wont let us be Better by far, we should try this next time It's effective and will prove sublime By wearing earplugs In each of our lugs We'll be laughing whilst nagging - in mime Laughing together will lighten our day It's a tonic to chase our problems away For a really big smile Can last a long while And we'll both get along better that way 24th January 2016-01-24 Collaboration by Jan Allison and Rob Bettridge

Try this at home (although if performed in public, it would be far more entertaining): Couples should face each other, take a deep breath and (without making any sound at all) Proceed to have a good old Nag and a Row with each other c/w animated finger wagging, Brow Beating, Silent Yelling, Jumping up & Down, Wailing, Gnashing of Teeth - The Whole Works! How long d'you think it would be before you both burst out laughing at the Silent Silliness of your Manic Mime? (If you are alone, try it in the Mirror)...........People who Play together, Get along together. People who Don't - Won't.

Btw, I know it was you Birthday Jan but I thought it might be insensitive of me to remind you (or indeed, any woman over forty) of it.
