The Marriage Counselor

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Your suggestion...
That I do 'something' to encourage jealousy,
To get 'some' emotion felt from my spouse towards me.
Did not go as plan.

'What did you do?
What happened? '

I invited a friend to pretend,
We were sleeping around and cheating.

'And...? '

The friend was the marriage counselor,
Who agreed the act of this would release some tension.

'What? '

Well...
One thing led to another.
And while we were having sex...
My spouse caught us and we confessed.

'Oh what a mess! '

Yes!
And all that was said,
Was to be sure to make the bed.
And when that was done...
Let's all go out to eat Tacos.
Since what was seen,
Increased the need to share an appetite!
