GENTLE PERSUASION

GENTLE PERSUASION

 

His wife has a tactic

That lures him with grace,

Asking him to do things…

Then putting them in his face.

She asks him to help her

To prepare Valentines,

And sets the roaster atop everything else…

To wash as he’s inclined!

If he wants any more dishes done

This big job he must do,

She gets around his lethargy…

And helps him feel better too!

Men have discussed woman’s wiles

Of various viscosity,

But this one draws him out of himself…

To be all he can be!
