Marriage  33
 Before we were married
I always had a poached egg on rye toast for breakfast
But since my husband didn't like rye toast
And didn't want to eat the same thing every day
I would make white toast, and scramble or fry...
 But I still liked eggs my way So every once in a while
jaw set, lips clenched I made rye toast for us both
 And one day
Only 52 years later — my husband looked at me And said, "You know,
rye toast and poached eggs Are quite good."
