by Peter the Poet © 1996

You've left hair in the sink and
your working clothes stink.
The lawn isn't mowed and
The garden's not hoed.
The trash isn't out so
There's trouble about.
The Wife seeks you to thresh
You've got trouble in the flesh.

The Dog has got fleas and
The car needs a grease.
The Kids are running wild and
The Wife's heavy with child.
With the bills stacked up high
You're tempted to cry.
Each day's a challenge afresh
You've got trouble in the flesh.

The Mother in law is very abrupt
And does her best to disrupt.
You left the toilet seat up
And there's mold in your cup.
Every day is just like the other
If not one thing, then it's another.
The gears of Marriage crunch and mesh
And you've got trouble in the flesh.
