Too Deep

My husband says my poems are too deep

Complains they are too elusive

So forgive me please

This one’s for him

I’m keeping it simple for stupid!

 

Twenty long years ago I was struck by cupid

Got me right through the heart

Grown wiser since then

Tore it down to size

Now it’s a three-inch dart

 

Don’t get me wrong you’re a fabulous guy

And I’ll always love ya honey

But if I had to do it over again

I’m telling you straight

I’d have to do it for money

 

Worry not my sweet you will always be

My little balding eagle

You’re always there

With your food dish in hand

Much like Charlie’s Beagle

 

I’ll stop teasing you

after all, you gave me four perfect sons

They’re gorgeous like a seaside tide

Don’t get excited babe

You must have figured out

They get that from my family’s side

 

Ok Ok I’ll say something nice

You really are a great father

But before your head swells

Remember this, it takes a real man

To make a daughter

So this love poem is for you

All these compliments yours to keep

Can you tell how much

You’re appreciated now

Or was I just a little too deep!

A Sarcastic Poem Written with Love:  Written in the 1990s as a joke for hubby. Poetry is not his thing, so I thought I’d keep this one simple for him. 🙂
