This Has Been Your Convenience
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
What has happened to our marriage?
We both participated in a ceremony.
And you believe,
Socializing with your friends...
And doing as you please,
Was part of it.
But I didn't say 'I do' to none of that!
Your marriage has been kept in tact!
On the other hand...
Mine hasn't started.
And that's why my bags are packed.'
But this has been 'our' marriage.
This has been your convenience.
And I am leaving that and you.'
