The bachelors deride the husband’s life,
And say he’s bullied daily by his wife,
Then in the club they meet their friends to moan
That matriarchal women rule the home.
“A single man is only ever half
A man,” the husband warns the men. They laugh
As their reply, the happy husband spurn,
And to their cold and lonely lives return.
The husband lays content beside his spouse,
Although his castle has become their house,
For every man has known since Adam’s fall,
A life alone is not a life at all.
