The Visitor - Whom I Had To Check!
  

The Visitor

 

My husband and I had a visitor the other day

A woman he once knew, hey, what can I say!

 

Before he got up to answer the door,

He looked at me as if to implore

 

That I not jump to any conclusions

That I try and keep a steady head

 

Immediately, he said to me   

“C’mon now honey, she’s just and old friend”

 

“Fine I said, I don’t have a problem with that anymore

Just tell me why she’s here now, knocking on our door?”

 

He looked me square in the face and

In that deep manly voice of his, he replied

 

“Well I certainly didn’t invite her,

If that’s what you’re implying”

 

I just stared him back in the eye and quietly said

“Honey, for both your sakes, I pray you’re not lying!”

 

He opened the door and let her in

She hugged him and to me she said, “Hi Jan”

 

“I was just in the neighborhood, visiting a friend

Thought I’d just come by to see if you two were in”

 

Before my husband could give a reply

I got up in her face, and I called her a lie

 

“I know why you’re here – which

On your part was a stupid mistake

And if you’re not gone in one second

More than your neck, will I brake!”

 

As she turned and ran from my home

With the quickness of a hare

My husband looked at me laughing and said

“I knew you’d go there!”

 

 “Yeah, I knew you knew that I would, and

Of course with you, she’s still smitten

But just to let the both of you know

I’m too old a cat to be licked in the behind by a kitten!”

Hilarious! I had tears in my eyes at the end. But I admire that you handled your business. And to then put it in a poem. I'm scared of you!!!!!!
