lament him while you can

I hear ‘em

moaning on

about their moaning men

well I guess you’ve been together

so long

you know each other’s stories

heard so many times before

can guess what the other has to say

I say

& they give me that same look

like I don’t understand

& elsewhere I know of another

would forever complain about her man

moan about whatever he did

& some seventeen years on

now that he’s dead & gone

she misses the kvetching

something to gripe about

some companion grouching

oh ok I say, look ladies

you know how this works:

men die before their women

you lament him while you can
