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!
