Owl Poetry & Prose

Dear Mr. & Mrs. X

Dear Mr. & Mrs. X

Wow, you two are the perfect pair

You with your wit, she with her looks

Your swollen bank account, Porsche & Benz

She with her family heirlooms, Colombo 7 address & trends

‘Ah what a catch’ cooed the families

Ah what a match, echoed society

Established family, business & friends

Along came the children who merely followed these trends

Your horn of plenty daily overflowed

Yet your kids had no substance, they merely followed

Painted faces, plastic smiles

Social gatherings, golf, parties

Hi Magazine, Gucci, Versace

Yet your Prada shades covered the bruises

His bank account covered the others’ cruises

So Mr. & Mrs. X it’s strange but true

I saw Mr. X but the Mrs. was not you

Oh but you’re happy to be

25 years you say is your anniversary?

So while Mrs. X posed and paraded in her finest hosiery

Mr. X was exalted – for his business acumen & infamous adultery

So this is what a successful marriage, family life should be?

Botoxed smiles, tainted portraits, abuse and lies?

What of Trust, Respect, Fidelity?

Or are we expecting too much of humanity?

So Fuck you Mr. & Mrs. X

You set this trend, pretending to be the best

Your kids are a mess, they are snorting Cocaine before they are legal to taste Champagne

Your escapades are on the lips of jobless aunties who are bored & depraved

Yet you want people to follow you, respect & admire you?

You must be fucking nuts, coz your lapdogs may chase you

But the rest of us ain’t mutts

We despise and deplore you
