                     How Not To Get Abandoned By a Wife

If once a comics freak, leave these behind;
The pulp, the seed and woman excel the rind.
If “piss-ant check” is current in her orals,
Rebuild your image with congruent laurels.
Strut with attitude, a bobcat, when you fail.
Posturings can exceed when love falls stale.
“Still mouthing gin proverbs in the dark?” –
Do this apart, with Gina in the park.
Push the market cart – you’re not Dante yet.
No bardic phrase will land her silver jet.
Above all, stay master of the check-out line,
And you will wear her like a coat of pine.
