Husband and Wife

That’s Life

Husband and Wife

My wife causes all sorts of trouble.

When she yells my full name I run on the double.

Three children and pets are running up debt.

All my wife says is, “Try not to fret!”

So under my breath I just grumble.


My husband operates like a louse.

He scurries to his man cave like a mouse.

When I ask him a question above his head forms a bubble.

Picking his brain is like rummaging through rubble.

Tonight he will sleep in the dog house.
