Poem- When your husband goes abroad

October 25, 2005

This is a poem that I wrote years agao and got a good response from poetry discussion forums and on my website:-

This is in response to one of my friend’s wife’s query , “ I feel so bored when my husband goes abroad. I don’t know what to do?.” I could not help but think on these lines ( in mischief; nothing serious):-

Whenever he goes to Japan
I can easily pitch in and hold the fort for your man

If he ever goes to Hong Kong
In addition to writing poetry, I shall sing a song

If and when he goes to USA,
Our romance can realy fructify; not remain hearsay

Alternatively, he could opt for Europe,
Then, you and me can easily elope.

Like everybody these days, if he opts for Australia
In addition to flattery, I can woo you with other Paraphernalia.

Only when he goes to China
I can begin to treat you like Princess Diana

One should look at all options, if he opts for Korea,
We can hope that he does not come back from that Area.

If only he could make it to Singapore,
Then, you and me can romance like never before

Let’s hope that he takes a fancy to Mauritius
Then, we can be really be romantically ambitious.

Why not hope that he he goes to Malaysia
Once there, I hope that he suffers from Amnesia

Then you and me can go to Thailand
And live alone in a way we would live on an island

  6. wait till he comes back home,
    he will chase n kill u in Rome!

  8. Guess it’s a lucky thing that the wife didn’t go on vacation. What would you have done if the husband asked you that question?

  9. Thanks Gangadhar and Deepa

    Sheks, if he had gone to the nearby village, I would have behaved like a sage to escape his rage.
    Then I would have a tomb with a dome
    At the end of a reciprocal syndrome

    Anorion: Good Question. If the wife had gone abroad, adopt a broader vision and go abroad.
