A Wife’s Lament
Some males get wrapped so tight
In sports - whichever one’s in sight.
They’re deaf and blind to what’s around
And hear, cannot but sporting sound.
I’ve given this a lot of thought
And wondered if I ought, or not
When at the time I breathe my last
To let my spouse know I have passed.
However strange that it may be
I’m sure the only way he’ll see
That little notice - just a bit
Is on the sports page - my Obit!
