The intellectual equivalent of a ham sandwich.


I was thinking about debt, and marriage, and how great you look in those pants – and I wrote this.

Til Debt Do Us Part

What I hear about marriages these days is bringing me grief
50 percent ending in divorce is the going belief.

And again, if what I hear is, in fact, right,
Money is to be blamed for this pitiful plight.

I’ll be honest with you, I’ll be upfront,
I’m not married, and as far as age?, I’m just a runt.

But take a minute, and see what I have to say
If this isn’t informative, it at least rhymes … so yay?

Many years ago a marriage ending was a minor scandal
Something that brought shame and pain and other bad things that are so hard to handle.

At some point, though, the climate changed
And divorce went from ’scandal’ to ’something that can be arranged.’

Change isn’t bad, in fact it can be quite good
In many cases embracing it will enrich your livelihood.

But when the ‘d’ word enters into your thinking
It’s time to sit down, and do some re-thinking.

Arguments happen, people fight, tempers flare, ‘things’ are said
But remember, you got married til someone dies, not til your marriage is dead.

If you can’t let things go, and ‘divorce’ may enter the conversation –
Take my advice, and take a vacation.

‘Til death do us part,’ is awfully severe
‘Til debt do us part’ is fun, and I can get you a package deal.
