Aftermath

After 18 years of marriage,
she said to him - ' it's over ' ! ,
It was not even close to being
from the blue! ...
That big 'ole '- Teddy bear,
is now out there on his own!

He had not had a drink in 17,
every morning, up at 5,
and then home again at 5 ,
because he loved her for all that he was worth!

After 18 years of marriage,
and 2 children that he raised,
she had the nerve to plant this seed...
- - - neither one was his!

He allowed that she was in control,
and that he had made mistakes,
... she has made a huge one now!

The good news is that he has several friends,
and I am one of them,
that are willing to get hurt - - -
to stop that Teddy - Bear - - -
and keep him out of jail - - -
... when he gets drunk!
