Poetry: cheating wives

Somebody got caught at the top floor of a ten story building so you figure either way Hun!
Somebody got caught at the top floor of a ten story building so you figure either way Hun!

Bitter husbands received bitter treatments

Do you like me now?

I like you better now than I liked you then

Because then you were faceless

Always with your hands out, clueless

Wondering why I’m always stress

While you stayed home restless.


No wondered why you always at the window

Looking out for my neighbor Joe

Flirting with him while I’m at work making do,

So that we have food on our table,

Is that your panties on the string?


Revealing to Joe the plumber that you wear thong

When you know I don’t like you stringing your wears

Without me around, in plain air

Are you having an affair?

Is that why you speechless when you stair,

Oh! You have left me in despair.


But that was then for then was bad

But this is now for now we know

I am the bread maker, who should never be anchored

I am the responsible father, who keeps the family together

I should never be bothered by Joe the plumber tempered.


Now that you understand my ways

From now on let us keep it this way

You do the cooking anyway and keep your thongs off the string

After work, I’ll eat plentiful for a bedroom rest I await


Is that my shoe under this chair?

But a size 12 is not what I wear

Hey! Whose shoe is this, are you there?

I hope she's not two-timing you with "the" Joe the Plumber!!! Two-timing is bad enough. A guy from the neighborhood is pretty lame, too. But she'd totally lose any/all respect if she chose that loser poser over you. That would be like you stepping out with Nadia whatsername the octuplet mom.

Thanks for reply guys

The picture alone is funny enough, the poem simply emphasized on the picture giving it a sense of reality.  Hey! Pest at least you didn't find a size 12 under the bed.

Thanks for visiting my pack yard.

Pest, no my friend this is not a personal experience. Although It happen to me in the past, this is not a reflection of one. As for you, I hope you find a better partner one that is suitable for your needs.

You go head JJrubio we waiting for it bring it on. Don't be mad if i challenge it. Thanks for the reply.

goldentoad that is a total no, not all good men abuse their relationship.  Sometime it's because us men compromise ourselves too much in order to satisfied our partner. And while doing that we sacrifice our own happiness. 

A note for my other poems which are more valuable than this one.

In most part of Africa, in some countries of the Caribbean, before we tell a story to the audience or enter someone home, we address them by saying honor! In a way the speaker is looking for approval before he delivers the story, it shows courtesy and respect. Obviously, if the listeners don't respond back by saying “RESPECT” they're not willing to hear your story or poetry. It is a way for the speaker to introduce himself to the audience before he/she begins the story. In Island like Haiti, the speaker says “CRICK!” and the audience respond “CRACK!” What I've just mentioned to you here is part of African literature, in fact most of my poetry and thoughts that I've posted on hub page & helium can very well be part of African literature. As you should notice, under all the Reflections titles, you'll notice an introduction before I began to reveal my thoughts to the audience. It is to show respect and honor to the audience and those that comes before us which are among us. Since a majority of people on hub page are European decent, it is possible that most may not know what I mean when I say. “When I say respect, you say honor ……respect! …..honor.” Thinks for promoting my work, I will surly check some of those poets on hub page.

I liked it! There's no doubt about that. I just wanted to make a joke, since relationships are a TWO-WAY Street and MEN cheat too. I have had that happen to me the majority of my life. Especially in a hispanic culture it is acceptable and women have to deal with it. I DON"T!!! Anyways- No disrespect intended. =)

Coolbreezing, I really enjoyed this poem. In addition to telling a really good story, the beat and rhythm stay with the reader throughout the poem. Very nice. I aspire to write better poetry so the more I read, perhaps someday I will "get" it. Peace.
