A Word To Husbands

Poem By 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.

I've loved Ogden Nash's poems ever since the time I used to read them at my grandpa's house when I was about six years old (I'm now 81) . This one is funny but it renders good advice.
