When of the wife I do speak,

I only say with tongue and cheek.

For all that watches from above,

She's the only one I truly love.


I had a budgie,

That talked a little.

Then a parrot,

That talked a lot.


Then I had a wife,

Who's constant jawling.

Drive's me insane,

If I could it all again.


As if for marriage,

You could have acquittal.

I wish I could have a budgie,

That only talked a little.

I have no budgie or parrot... but I do have a talking cat. I can listen to her trilling all day. :) Having said that, I think we ALL need to find those moments of peace and quiet in solitude - even away from our spouses - for a few minutes each day. If you can find that, and preferably within Nature, the recharge makes everything new again. :)
Just listen to me! Rabbiting on when all I needed to say was " I know where you are coming from!"
