A Message to Newly-Married Men

 

By Elton Camp

 

Okay, fellows, you better not dare

This poem, with you wife, to share

 

But if a woman reads it anyway,

“That’s right,” she will surely say

 

A wife will act nice for a year or two

After that, the honeymoon is through

 

Things will, by then, start to get rough

As her Mother said, you aren’t good enough

 

Your spouse will have come to expect

Your words and actions she must correct

 

With a clod like you, she doesn’t belong

For you are most consistently wrong

 

But she’ll probably tolerate you anyway

Because it’s easier just to let you stay

 

Young men, my words you’d better fear

It’s the voice of experience speaking here
