I am not your spouse
Not your helpmate, no not for a louse
I am most certainly not your neck
Nope. No longer at your beck
There was naught in those titles for me
Felt more like collars that forced me to agree
So I take my bow, with relief as my fuel
Adios! No longer your mule.
How else do I say ‘I am not your spouse?’
I won’t be browbeat into a mouse
I’ve made it clear there is no ‘we’
Don’t owe you audience cos you disagree
Incredible years without your demons
I won’t give up peace despite your ‘reasons’.
You want to keep the Burj with zero carat
I’ll pass! And wish you all the best with that!
I can’t devote my soul to dysfunction
Deep soaking instead, in boat loads of unction
I walked from loneliness and despair
Because ‘For worse’ does not mean ‘For wear’.
I really don’t need a court absolu
I’ve unshackled myself from bondage with you
Phew! Your absence is really a plus!
Cos baby you’ve been nothing but loss!
So honey, I am not your spouse
You blew your allowance when you ripped my blouse
If I am lying, why do you still want in!
Pray for our marriage!? Connivance is sin!
What’s done is done darling, you do you
I’ve learned to sprint from bad juju
There is no more pain in this my house
Cos Hallelujah! I am not your spouse!
