Fri 11-May-07: Singlehood


The Grass is always greener
On the other guy's lawn
Parents long to be childless
When their brats are acting up.

Childless couples are desperate to be parents
And will go through many dollars and effort for that.
Until they too, get to feel battle weary.
And fight with their children.

But it's not limited to kids;
Even married folks can complain.
The singles bemoan their loneliness,
The marrieds yearn to be free.

And a few lucky people
Have balance and luck
And have both spouses and kids they actually adore,
Oh, isn't that simply a bore??!

You're SO right. I love how your poetry touches the heart of the most natural human feeling.
