There are problems ogling wives,

Others may take yours a prize…

Husbands may upset

Your running bet,

Making you pay with your lives!

Be careful–don’t get attached–

To women already matched…

It may turn true

They’ll be fond of you,

But likely prefer their own catch!

As he thinks so he is,*

His thoughts and business are his…

Would he like his wife

Be chased for life,

And made to share who is his?

–Jonathan Caswell

*Proverbs 23: 7

Matthew 5: 27-28
