Woman and the Infamous Head- Ache!

Updated on January 13, 2014

When men are stirred to love they find too many rules

They just are not created with communication tools

She looks in him in the eye and says, " The oven must be warmed,

you think just showing up is my reason to perform? "

He tries to understand but they just don't speak the same

She speaks in silly riddles, the man is not to blame

"You can't expect my heat to rise on nothing but a wish

a meal takes time if your to dine, I'm not a fast food dish "

Perhaps a glass of wine will simplify the chase

but "no!" in every language is written on her face

She says she's like a bank account, deposits are her fee

"the bank is closed, the vault is sealed and you don't have the key"

"You've got to prime the pump, before you take a drink

love doesn't spill upon command like water from the sink "

He stands bewildered, in a haze, what is that she wants?

If he can't understand her, how can he get response

He can't unravel her mystery, he can not fathom her need

The women speaks a language, that he's unable to read.

What can he do to understand this living rubic cube?

How can he get her ready, how does he change her mood?

The bottled wine remains uncorked and he's verbalized his plot

but all he's done is of no use, he can not warm the pot

"You must begin on Monday if you want to have your way

by Sunday I'll be ready if you've done the job each day."

"If I begin on Monday and I do my job each day

so long a wait before return seems insufficient pay

A deposit made on Monday should yield a like reward

I think you ask too much, how much can I afford?"

"What you will get on Monday earned in a single day

is nothing but the menu but you want the whole buffet"

So here is man on Monday and he's still a week away

She won't be home till Sunday and she won't come out to play

All he has is promise, a bunch of hoops and silly rules

In a week he won't remember where to put the family jewels

but, if by chance he gets there, if he doesn't make mistake

the clever women that she is, invents the infamous head ache!

      So glad that you walked with dinosaurs! The walk alone has to leave one with a sense of humor; I also lived with those amazing creatures! By the way, making a woman laugh has a tendency to cure headaches...Am sure your sense of humor is more effective than Advil!

      You and your wife are so fortunate to have each other!

      I was laughing at loud all through this clever and original poem...Your line " a meal takes time if you're to dine, I'm not a fast food dish.." had me chocking on my morning coffee...My cat was giving me funny looks...

      This is too funny, and probably true in many respects. It brings new meaning to the phrase " take the time to smell the roses "...Ah, such sweet vapors when love is blossoming between the sheets...

      Thank you for this most enjoyable poetic treat...I'm your newest fan and look forward to your unique and stimulating prose...Larry
