Why My Eye Cry (limerick)

Wife’s beauty would oft make me cry

And I’ll share with you secret why

Sure I was the guy

For whom she’d apply

Store’s makeup that I had to buy

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and most often his wallet. I'm sure it was much appreciated. What we women do for our men.

If your wife looks anything like that photo you show,

Be grateful, Martin, that you are still her best beau.
