Hubby's Day

Hubby does not enjoy my poetry.

He says he does, but I can tell he doesn't.

That's okay, though, I don't enjoy his retelling of obscure historical events, or when he waxes poetic about lyrics to nontraditional hip hop songs, but I listen anyway, sorta.

So here it is:

Ode to the Man I Love (on his birthday which is today in case you were wondering).


Here ye, Here ye, friends and foes,
I'm gonna tell a bout a man I knows.

He's my babys' daddy, the man in my life,
I'd protect him in a fight with a gun or a knife.

We've been a team for many years,
We've shared so much, some joy, some tears.

But, I can't really say it was love at first glance,
Think it was more like, hey, take off your pants.

Kidding of course, it was much more than that,
For example, I liked how he looked in a hat.

And, I liked his hands, and his really cute face,
So I thought, I might like to hang out at his place.

After a bit, I knew he was for me,
but he didn't see it, so he tried to flee.

By then it was way beyond to late,
and when he moved we continued to date.

We reunited and have since never parted,
even when faced with challenges uncharted.

We had a baby, we waited awhile,
And, finally we did it, we walked down the aisle.

We had more kids, I got fat, he stayed thin,
He says he never notices my double stuffed chin.

Imperfectly matched though we are we're together,
And, I'm guessing that's how it will be till forever.

Happy birthday, Hubby.

Picture me doing that double snap appreciation thing you see in coffee houses when poetry is read... like on TV because that is the only place I've actually seen it.
