Is This Fair?

 

I saw you

on Facebook –

I was surprised:

you were wearing

a gold wedding band.

You told me –

and I know –

you weren’t married –

and never would –

because there’s no need.

He’s married

to someone

for thrity years

and wouldn’t ever think

of divorcing her.

Is this fair?

For you too

have allowed him

to live with you

for twenty-odd years.

Why do you

give so much,

when he doesn’t appreciate you

but take you for granted?
