The Hen-pecked Husband

"The Hen-pecked Husband" By M. Taha Effendi (Light Poetry) The door bell rang yet again, and yonder heard the distinct voice, of my dear old wife, full of pain, drowned all my dreams of rejoice. then came the thundering slap, that landed on my cheek now red, and as I panicked out of my nap, I realized I had wet my bed.

Did you know this activity is a thing of the past now? There are diapers for people who have these problems. Between babies and old people the land fill sites must be hard to handle. How are you Taha, every so often I see your name and have to come and say hi to you. Hope all is well in your world! Luv, Lizzie

An impressive light poetry. This is what happens when you marry a wrong girl. Beware! Thanks for reading and your inspiring comments on my poem On Receiving a Rose. Good luck to you with your writings.
