Poetry Breakfast #20 – A Word To Husbands

A Word To Husbands
with thanks to Ogden Nash

To keep the table peaceful,
calm and serene, listen up:
When you burn dinner, admit it;
When she does, shut up.

A Word to Husbands
Ogden Nash

To keep your marriage brimming
With love in the loving cup,
Whenever you’re wrong, admit it;
Whenever you’re right, shut up.
