She Would Even Rather The Dog

Than her husband she would even rather the dog
To her he is violent after his fill of grog
In front of their two young daughters he slaps her around
In the mind of the wife beating drunkard the coward to be found
It was all love between them before and for awhile after their wedding day
But love in her life sad for her did not stay
He took to the beer he's a changed man since then
Alcohol seems to bring out the worst in some men
She has no desire to live with such an obnoxious man
For to leave him forever she does secretly plan
One day he will come home from work to an empty house
Minus his young daughters the dog and his spouse
For his sins against her he will be made to pay
What goes around comes around as some are known to say.
