Marriage Squabble

13 Nov

There’s a good idiom challenge at dVerse poets especially if you have a fascination for idioms.I played around with idioms a bit about how some days marriage can seem shattered.

Do a French kiss(can you?)

Instead of chewing me out

Over spilt milk, the puddle for the curious cat.

Pipe down, will you? the neighbours have ears for walls

We’ve queered this pitch damp enough,

Untie this under the weather knot, my friend.

Hit the sack,  dream, let sleeping dogs lie, die?

    nice…you know..i’ve seen this movie..french kiss..but until yesterday it wasn’t clear for me that a french kiss is what we germans call tongue kiss…smiles…but think it’s a good alternative to chewing one out over spilt milk…smiles

    Louise, am so happy you enjoyed it…..marriages are a repository of emotion on an every day basis. Good grounds for poems.
