I Chose to be a Jackass

I chose to be a jackass
For I didn’t have a clue,
What there was in it for me
When meekly I said ‘I Do’.
I Do, I did and in doing so
I’ve toiled half my life,
Working merrily all day long
For the one they call my wife.
She came, stayed and took control
Of house, hearth and all
Granted too liberty I am
With children I play ball
Shopping, chatting by the day
She merrily spends her time
Waits eagerly then for me
To end her hard days grind
Her chatter then begins again
Oh there's so much to tell
All that happened here around
From which tree who nearly fell
The evenings are no longer mine
Her plans for it are made
Into the trap door guided then
That's there been so well laid
Not the only one my dear
That didn't have a clue
Plenty of fools you'll find around
Who meekly said 'I Do'
