~ Breakfast In Bed ~

Updated on June 25, 2013

~ Breakfast In Bed ~


A hay fevered housewife, stifles a sneeze,

As her knickers revolve round at thirty degrees;

Glares through her window, at victims of fashion,

And wondering, where now, hides her husband’s passion.

Ironing, now done; has this spin cycle ended?

Now where is her thanks, from his heart, she had mended?

Scrubbing their home, walking children to school,

So why is she treated, like an unpaid fool?

A sister, a lover, a matriarch mover,

Rolls a hidden-winged Angel, who pushes her hoover.

Puppy, begs food, and then licks up her face,

It’s the only darn love, she can get in this place.

Four-legged fur, fawns felicitations;

Just how will it end, this damn year-long frustration?

Thumbing through pics, of their wedding, so fine,

Pretty face stole the lens, verily, kidnapped that time,

When they sailed ‘pon high seas, of the calm and the warm,

Did she settle for any old port in a storm?

Now lenses are blurred, through her clear looking glass,

While she’s checking her pout, and the size of her a$$.

Does he spurn her advances, for the shallowest of reasons,

‘Cos her body reshapes, with the changing of seasons?

She tries on her pearls, then dabs on, fine perfume,

And hopes, that somehow, failing marriage resumes.

Through her net, bedroom pane; honey stares, wanting more,

From the Poet, who’s in love, with this woman next door.

      Thank you cleaner3.Unfortunately, it seems to happen all too often, so I've written about it, in order to prick the consciences of absent-minded husbands.

      Yours Sincerely,

      Romeo's Quill

      Nicely tol. I suspect each man reading this adds his own spin.

      That's good, WL, that your dad is looking out for you.You've spent so much time, and hard work on your pieces, that it would indeed be a travesty if your best articles were to be snatched by the unscrupulous.

      I hope you have a good week . :)

      Yours Sincerely,

      R.Q.

      Absolutely! Dad has always taught me to have some kind of back up plan. Being a former police officer and military officer, I've learned a lot from him. Any pointers I get will help in the long run! :D

      WL. It's more of a pointer, rather than advice, as I try not to give that - it can be one of the worst vices of all :)

      I tend to triplicate, and date all of the work I do, which includes a handwritten, paper draft, as well.

      Another thing which I found to be useful, is to make a slight mistake in each of your pieces, that only you know about, but usually, if it's a personal Hub, only you will know for certain what was going through your mind when you wrote it,anyway, which is another safeguard for you.

      Lending inspiration to others is amazing, and furthers the art, but ripping off someone's hard work, I find, is simply bad form.

      I like your attitude. :))

      Okay. I will say, though, that my biography is a little outdated but I will take your advice. Besides which, and I was just thinking about this recently, too, I have physical evidence (written) of my work if it comes down to it. My final words to the thief will be: SO THERE! LOL

      Lol! I remember that ha!ha! You're funny :)

      Hey WL...I see you've changed your biography, adding a copyright on all of your work.A li'l tip, if I may be so bold....I know all of those who rip off some of my work, whether in part, or by contextual theme, and changing characters in order to disguise said plagiarism, but if you wait until they become famous on your work, then they might be worth suing; not only will your patience pay financial dividends, but your work will be re-credited back to yourself.

      LOL! Yep, he sure needs to get it together unless he wants me to take some white-out and make him half the man he used to be and make his mistress leave him. :D

      The flash has struck again! lol!

      There's no greater magic than love, so if that doesn't work, then their relationship seems doomed.This dude needs to sort his sh!t out, and FAST, or she, and the poet might end up living happily ever after instead.

      This verse is written, so that husband's may learn to pay attention to their wives, if they don't want them to stray.

      Thanks WL :)

      I think the woman needs to give her man a good butt-kicking or some sort of mind-melding spell to get him back. LOL! That should do the trick. :) As usual, very well penned! Voted it up!
