Verbal Violence

The poet woke from his world

Of creation

To the heavy murmuring of

His spouse

Who performs lately in constant


About her fate late in life

She calls undeserved.

Indeed the poet agrees

But little he can do other

Than support her toward

Her expenses

Battle with rising inflation

Having fallen on hard times.

The poet still describes his


His spouse considers useless

But then he takes her antics

With a generous pinch of


Yet verbal anger

Has driven his spouse

To subscribe mentally

To violence

Enjoying movies about

Al Capone.

Her behaviour escalates

Toward a serious split

Also in reality

She stated on many occasions.

And what about tomorrow?

Verbal violence to spiral?
