Just Cause

He never picked up his wet towels off the bathroom floor,

no matter how many times I asked.

He never left the toilet seat down after he used it,

no matter how many times I implored.

He never arrived anywhere on time,

no matter how many times I waited.

He never squeezed the toothpaste from the end,

no matter how many times I begged.

He never asked me what I wanted to watch on television,

no matter how many times I glared.

He never held the door open for me,

no matter how many times I paused.

He never was able to catch his breath,

no matter how many times I pushed.

It wasn’t my fault he never learnt swim with bricks tied to his feet,

no matter how many times I smiled.
