The Game Changer In A Matrimonial Masquerade

Homes broken, futures stolen Lives shattered Children, men and women forsaken Beauties and cuties battered Family members scattered Matrimonial vows broken Values down watered Untruths spoken Wedding and kitchen party celebrations forgotten Tempers raised, minds crazed Intransigence and insolence gotten Sorrows grazed, sanity and sobriety erased Divorce legal proceedings pursued Bad blood contemplated Acrimony and recrimination ensued In score setting scenes dilated and inflated Dark thoughts entertained Anger drawn, thrown and grown upfront Malice maggots maintained Ego-tripping agenda pushed to the front alongside affront Courtship days and sweet nothings uttered-a distant memory As spouses spar with sharp swords Weapons of mutual unleashed from the matrimonial armoury While spouses with daggers drawn scowl like ill tempered toads Prompting church leaders with mouths agape To stare in horror at the shambolic charade Playing out without a sensible route escape Leaving a rueful responsibility to a disappointed dad.
