Garbage Day

It’s garbage day today –

just like every week.

As a man and mate –

my true worth I do seek.

Did not bare the child –

would not if could.

Had joy but not the pain –

although I feel I should.

But as I do collect –

around our humble home.

The trash put out today –

I think that I have shown –

My worth in wedding bliss –

this chore that I hold dear.

Ask for a little slack –

I’m grasping straws right here
