Barry's Mom Was Correct

His Mom Was Right After All

 

By Elton Camp



Barry was convinced he’d found the love of his life

And just knew his girl would make the perfect wife

So to his mother he couldn’t find enough good to say

“She is beautiful, kind, loving and great in every way.”



During the engagement, the women became acquainted

His mother slowly learned she wasn’t as he had painted

His fiancé was demanding, hot-tempered and even more

Son didn’t know it, but she’d been divorced twice before



When Barry’s mother became much concerned for him,

She called him aside to talk, her face so extremely grim

“Son, I think marriage to this woman you’ll soon regret.

I surely do hope that, on her, you are not too firmly set.”



“Laura Sue warned me that something like this you’d try.

That you didn’t want another woman in your life is why.”

His mother’s loving counsel Barry then pushed away

And was as happy as he could be on his wedding day



For the first few months, all in his life went fairly well

Then Laura Sue began to make her husband’s life hell

And so, just as she had done with husbands one and two

Demanding, screaming and shouting was all she did do



Poor Barry then recalled his mother’s warning word

And wished that her advice he hadn’t thought absurd

Now it looks like the final outcome will come to be

Barry’s first divorce and Laura Sue’s number three
