Marital covenant chaste away errant infidelity


Yours truly shirked fidelity regarding faithful vows

bequeathed courtesy angel of mercy,

who pledged her troth

July twenty fifth nineteen ninety six

five months (not quite to the day) before


\"star student\" birthed

on December twenty second,

(now gainfully employed

at Certified B-Corporation

San Francisco, California).


The missus madder than a raging (red) bull

visa vis upon discovering mine absence

(cuz I slept in the basement

at 724 Railroad Avenue)

how wretched and dull

being married and celibate,


hence yours truly sought full

fill mint outside the marriage,

yet unbeknownst to this husband

an automatic, fatalistic,

and opportunistic hull

king, quaking, and vociferating wife


gave me a thrashing tongue lashing harangue

verbal dressing down, I betrayed,

coveted another woman

flaunted sacred pact and will (as good as) hang

which sexual imbroglio,

albeit (nocturnal escapade) did boomerang

in earshot of both our young daughters virgin ears,

thus a sudden pang


to exit the scene arose up inside me

courtesy wishful trapdoor to appear suddenly,

(whereby regarding floorboards)

from out mine overactive imagination sprang

open to usher, and/or time travel back

to earlier that fateful night rather than lang


whooshing amidst livid rage

self serving deserved fiery emasculation,

the noose hence I did stage,

experiencing withering, twittering,

snapchatting, kickstarting blistering

expletive laced epithets think

ready to burst pressure cooker

evincing dangerously hot level gauge


driving figurative wedge

between me family

courtesy foaming at the mouth spouse

(of course deux progeny affected)

renting asunder and rendering hollow

thee justice of the peace

gordian tied, uttered,

vouchsafed worded oath I did pledge.


Divorce prematurely ejaculated,

yet instantaneously dismissed

no more pleasant alternative spewed versus

contracting cankerous cyst

analogous to toxic mother


of our two offspring hissed

disparaging me directly linkedin

with promiscuous tryst

me honestly, lamely, meekly

justifying philandering gist


cuz gal methought

(good idea mister casanova wannabe),

which came as soliloquizing aside

to exchange as bartered bride

thine scorned wife,

who would relentlessly chide
(even long after the day I died)

heard thru tomb harrows coffin


abominable behavior, I do readily admit

figuratively found me electrified

what with raging testosterone nsync with

hormonal secretion my guide

erotic gamboling, I chose not to hide

never back once black traipsing inside

double entendre meant

viz yule eyes joyride.
