The Sentence

~

      “Out! Out!”

 

With a vengeance,

she follows her words

with a glare:

 

      “Out! Out!”

Get rid of it all –

 

Whatever he had,

I can get any where.

 

      “Be rid!  Get rid!”

I don’t want it round here.

 

And so went the life

of a husband and wife –

      A life completely lived out.

 

      “Out! Out!”

I want rid of the lout!

 

So went her words in the sentence.

 

And his?

    His he received with her vengeance!
