The Holy Church of Matrimonial Bliss


On that fateful day when I said “I do”

I became a member of that church of two

All my money goes to my wife’s collection bowl

Disappearing without a sound down that holy hole

The evening meal is considered a shrine

Where I get to consume some holy wine

A sermon is delivered at least twice a week

With the outlook for me usually rather bleak

And the praying to her never ends

To let me hang out and drink with my friends

But once in a while at various nights

I humbly get to visit my wife’s holy sites

These are the nights you don’t want to miss

Where you partake of the matrimonial bliss

Followed by the day of infinite grace

Confessing my sins with a straight face

We even have church picnics once in a while

Where we congregate, talk, eat, and smile

So you see, my church is at home

No need for a cathedral with golden dome

    Written with great sensitivity and love - a tribute to a great couple.

    • FredPeyer

      Aww, thanks Michael. I just wanted it to be funny. But I guess I cannot deny my love for my better half, even if I do have to confess my sins! 🙂

      Good write Fred. Meanwhile, with my KP 'wedding' I'm having anything but matrimonial bliss! I got me ball and chain on. It will never be removed, cos she has the key to the chain! lol.

      • FredPeyer

        Thanks orchi, I did not know they had chastity belts for guys! Maybe KP was around way back when, seeing you as a knight, and fell in love with you right then and there. And that is where she got the belt from.

      • Goldfinch60

        May your Church be filled with love and light. Good write.

        • FredPeyer

          It is, it is, Goldfinch, thank you very much. The only dark days are the confession days, but I'll live!

        • BRIAN & ANGELA

          Brilliant FRED a perfect analogy ~ although I speak from ANTICIPATION ~ not EXPERIENCE ! However your Poem perfectly mirrors my observation of my parents when I was domiciled for 18 carefree years ! Please check my tribute to ANGELA ON A BEACH ~ BRIAN

              Yes, I used to belong to that church, and remember those services well. Cute poem on a fine marriage, Fred! You are a fortunate man.

                    • lasergraph

                      Great write and I could identify with a lot of this in my own worship routine.

                      • FredPeyer

                        Thanks lasergraph, I guess our churches homes are all different, but we do belong to the same matrimonial bliss religion!

                      • myself and me

                        What a blessing.

                        • FredPeyer

                          Thanks m&m, the poem may be funny, but I know that I am seriously blessed having found her and that she decided to stick around.

                        • rrodriguez

                          Fred, this is indeed a well and thoughtful poem. Enjoyed it. I had a smile as I read it.
