Valentine's Day Ballad

Forgive my doggerel, but it seemed appropriate to the spirit of Valentine's Day cards.


Husband leaves for a conference
that is art historical.
Four kids and sciatica
leave me hysterical.

There's snow and more snow,
Then freezing rain.
It's Valentines day
I'm snowed in and in pain.

Hours pass, then he calls
from the airport. I'm astounded;
He'd booked on Jet Blue
and all flights were grounded.

And so he came home
(my relief was enormous),
Googled 'hip pain' and found
I'd cramped my piriformis!

So I made an appointment
For a guy to beat on me.
I can hardly wait
To get my massage therapy.
