People said I was getting old

They said I had started developing wrinkles on my face

They even said my hair had started greying

That I was approaching menopause

That, I had to get married

I was reluctant too

Because I was getting set in my ways

I wasn’t about to be told what to do

How to do what to do

Reluctantly I conceded

And regretted it, almost immediately

For starters, my husband snores

He eats much too loudly

And belches even louder

The foregoing irritates me

Sets my teeth on edge

I wish I had’nt listened

To what the people said

The funny reasons

I wish I had dared them

Called their bluff

Then I wouldn’t be, in this waterloo
