Sweet Money Talk

 article about Sweet Money Talk

A husband must have control over his wife,


Without which he does not feel secure,


This is the case-


For most men.


 


I must earn more than you,


Otherwise I am not a man,


You understand, dear?


I love you.


 


But my mother tells me I must have a bit of my own savings,


A woman must protect herself,


In case of emergency,


Is that not so?


 


Silly girl!


You stay at home and be a good mother and wife,


About money- 


Leave that to me.


 


But I must look out for myself,


Oh I know we two make one whole,


But I just don't want to be-


Totally under your control.


 


And this-alas,


The tension-


Between a couple- of money,


And of a woman's secret savings.
