To the gentleman courting my wife



I bet she told you

I ignore her,

we have nothing in common,

I forgot her birthday,

we’re only married for the kids,

we sleep in different beds,

I’m fucking my secretary.

      I bet she never told you about the last guy.

  4. I love the punch of this, the way it builds, and the way it contrasts with the genteel nature of your title. Fantastic!

  9. Love the voice in this - there are always two sides. The listing of his 'failings' works very well. All we need now is to know how her current lover responded.
