And boy did it make me feel sad

I've been at the altar a lot

Divorced all but one that I got

But this is a Hub

That shows you the rub

Who's crucial and also who's not

Voted Up and Over. :)

Very funny! It's clever of you to take a situation that (often) has a basis in fact and find the humor.

Voted Up and FUNNY!

Martin - there's a popular country song like that you know,

'My Wife Ran Away with My Best Friend and I Miss Him So.'

It received lots of play

Way back in the day,

Since so many people could identify with that woe.

Funny but not funny. I have know several cases where this has actually happened. But, I enjoyed reading this and had to chuckle.

I like drbj's reference to the country song. I have never heard it, but

would love to hear it.

Martin, you certainly come up with some good ones. Do you ever sleep?

One of your best!!
