Sport 35: Winter 2007
I am a Man of Many Professions, — My Wife is a Lady of Many Confessions
I am a Man of Many Professions,
My Wife is a Lady of Many Confessions
I am a carpenter,
I carpent this wood.
I bore nails and nests in the chests of my trees.
My wife is a woman,
she womans this hood.
She bore children and nests in the chests of her soul.
I am a husbandman,
I husband my resources.
I keep children and money and the nests of bees.
My wife has a husband,
she husbands him well.
Our nest is well-stocked with bread, butter and coal.
I am a hunter,
in the Bavarian woods.
I pluck stags and hares from their nests in the grasses.
My wife is a gutter,
she guts a good duck,
and into the nest of her ears I pour all of my muck.
I am a fisher,
on the Sicilian shores,
I net cold cod and gannets, a roe nest if it passes.
My wife is a shagger,
she has a pet shag.
If it dives for the whiting, then in bed I'm in luck.
