We are at home, self-isolating
It is just me and my wife
We spend all our time together,
More than any time in my life.
The first weeks, they were awful
There were arguments galore,
The first punch was soon thrown
And I landed flat on the floor.
Just like a defeated boxer
I was out for the count of ten.
How long ago did she love me?
I cannot remember when.
Things are much better now,
she has subdivided the house
I was allocated the box room.
I said yes. I am such a mouse.
She is training in the garden
I watch her exercise every day.
The way she hits that punch bag,
making sure I am here to stay.
So, if you are also stuck at home
and are desperate to drive your car.
Just imagine being in my plight
And realize just how lucky you are.
This was only written for fun and my wife has told me that I must assure people that she is not like that at all. She did say that unless I show her as a good person, I’ll be in the box room long after the virus is over.
