A man and a woman
Living the American Dream.
Two kids and a dog
And stability, it would seem.

The husband, professional.
The wife stays at home.
The husband, he cheats and
Leaves the family alone.

For two years this betrayal
Continues on a path
Of destruction and lies
Until unleashing it's wrath.

The victims, how sad,
Are the children, you see.
Hopelessly they cling to what's left
After infedelity.

Two families broken.
Four children in all.
And Promises forgotten
Like the leaves of fall.

You did it!
Congratulations!
You got what you wanted,
With no hesitations.

From the very first second
I discovered this tryst,
I should have sought you
And told you just this:

If you wanted him
All you had to do was ask.
But to stalk me and haunt me
Are illegal tasks.

It's a crime in the least
And I'll grant you no mercy.
When the Judge comes a callin'
You'll see passion's fury.

You can have him my dear ~
All his faults and deceptions,
His sweltering ego
And his lack of perfection.

His belly button lint
Is now yours for the keepin'
And I hope chronic snoring
Keeps you always from sleepin'.

The perfect pair you'll be ~
Him, the cheater, You the mistress.
Now there's a story to tell
The kids at each Christmas!

My glory is this,
And many would agree,
After all is said and done
And the two of you are free...

It won't be much longer
When before your very eyes,
You find the "award" you've been seeking,
Is merely a booby prize.

Great job Sherry,
I can see thru your writings that your
getting away from all the downfalls of divorce and are starting to feel the freedom
that comes with most separations.
Keep up the Good work Sherry
and God Bless

Man oh man!!! I'm sure glad I'm not on the receiving end of this. You have a rapier tongue and know how to use it. Although I can relate real well to this. Sounds a bunch like my ex husband and I wish I'd have thought of it. Very good!!

OH Thanks, everyone!  Very pleasurable to write this one, although I wish my "niceness" would have allowed for an even nastier tribute!  Felt great to type "booby prize". HAHAHA!
