An Interesting Attempt

In an attempt to be interesting, I wrote a poem that analyzed my relationship with my wife.

An Interesting Attempt

Once upon a time, there was a girl-child,
Unto whom was given a very mild
Romantic interest in masculine
Subjects, so things that were considered wild

Interested her not, nor did she sin:
So the needs of the flesh could never win

Against her gentleness and kind regard;

Giving was her greatest asset, a thin
Little matter in the face of all hard
Organizations which, trying to guard
Righteous living, attempted to prevent
Interesting rewards and to retard
Occupational situations sent
Under different intentions meant,
So that all her hopes seem to come to naught;

Learning that his interest had been bent
Into an attempt to have her love bought
For purposes other than those she ought
Everytime she tried to turn around,

Frustration set in, as if she’d been caught
Under the table, her hand on the ground
Like a criminal who’d nearly been found
Lying through her teeth about what she said:

Only the truth passed through her lips, a sound
Faintly able to awaken the dead,

Until his interest got out of bed,
Now that all things have not gone his way,
Especially when in his silly head
X-rated thoughts were still holding their sway,
Pushing his good sense much farther away,
Except when his temper could not obtain
Control over what he tried on that day;
The fact that he’s attempting to maintain
Ev’ryone in his care, but not restrain
Deeds which could hinder worker usefulness

Leaves me the thought that his sexual pain
Often overrides logic to express
Very fruitful interests he may possess
Either in the world or the undefiled:
Such is the sin which can a man obsess.
