Behind the Grindstone: True Love

By Bill Bunting

February 8, 2023

They acted like newlyweds
Though they’d been married forty years
They’d hung onto each other
Through the laughter and the tears

Through the good times and the bad
Their love just seemed to grow
Oh how he loved his Louise
How she loved her Homer so

They never had an argument
They never had a fight
But they had some intense discussions
And they discussed with all their might

One would push their opinion hard
The other on the defense
Causin’ their discussions
To become downright intense

Then the other one would gain ground
And discuss the thing again
It seemed they enjoyed the discussing
Though neither seemed to win

But no matter what Homer said
No matter what she heard
It seems that Louise
Always got in the last word

Now they were endin’ one of their discussions
And Homer seemed to be behind
When a thought of how to end it
Came racin’ through his mind

He said, “I was a fool when I married you
That’s all I’ve got to say”
Louise said, “I knew that at the time
But I married you anyway”

At least, that’s the view here from behind the grindstone.
