Poem of the Week: Pulling Teeth

“Of the two kinds you will meet, you will soon see,

Dealing with one’s a cake walk, and the other like pulling teeth,

Domestic kind sometimes as unwilling as can be,

Foreign can hide neither her excitement nor glee,

Shit tests aplenty, for play you must bleed,

Compared to smiles and birthing hips, eager to breed,

To beget good behavior, one must mistreat,

Whereas good treatment begets she treats you like a king,

But do not, for a second believe,

That as brokeback-beta, you may precede,

For if you do, your gains wholesale recede,

And neither woman will respond if you plead,

The overarching point that you must heed,

Foreign is more rewarding, despite less work than you’d need.”

    George Sanders once said:

    “A woman, a dog and a walnut tree, the more you beat them, the better they be.”

What do you think about that?
