FIFTY SHADES OF GREY – (a husband’s point of view)

By Pam Ayers (MAYBE!)

By John Summers (DEFINITELY!!)

The missus bought a Paperback,
down Shepton Mallet way,
I had a look inside her bag; ….
T’was “Fifty Shades of Grey”.

Well I just left her to it,
And at ten I went to bed.
An hour later she appeared;
The sight filled me with dread…

In her left hand she held a rope;
And in her right a whip!
She threw them down upon the floor,
And then began to strip.

Well fifty years or so ago;
I might have had a peek;
But Mabel hasn’t weathered well;
She’s eighty four next week!!

Watching Mabel bump and grind;
Could not have been much grimmer.
And things then went from bad to worse;
She toppled off her Zimmer!

She struggled back upon her feet;
A couple minutes later;
She put her teeth back in and said
I had to dominate her!!

Now if you knew our Mabel,
You’d see just why I spluttered,
I’d spent two months in traction
For the last complaint I’d uttered.

She stood there nude and naked
Bent forward just a bit
I went to hold her, sensual like
and stood on her left tit!

Mabel screamed, her teeth shot out;
My god what had I done!?
She moaned and groaned then shouted out :
“Step on the other one”!!

Well readers, I can’t tell no more;
About what occurred that day.
Suffice to say my jet black hair,
Turned fifty shades of grey!

    OhMyBloodyGOD! I just spat out my coffee all over my desk (and part of myself). I cannot stop laughing. I read that 3 times. The part about “I might have had a peek; But Mabel hasn’t weathered well; She’s eighty four next week!!” sent me into whales of laughter. By the time I got to the teeth flying out….. Bloody hell, my stomach hurts.

    This was JUST what I needed right now, Portia. Absolutely priceless! You’re an angel for sharing it.

    It’s just after 5am here and I’m trying to not laugh too loud so I don’t wake the hubby. What a perfect poem for a Friday. Too funny.

  14. Donelle Talintyre says:

    With tears rolling down my cheeks and in utter hysterics it took 5 minutes for me to “normalise” and regain my composure. My whole body just shook in paroxysms of laughter. What a fabulously clever poem and great therapy. Needless to say this is going to go viral, most likely 🙂

    I laughed and laughed and laughed……and passed it on to some friends so they could join the laughter…..

  16. John Summers says:

    Hi .. author here 🙂 …..thanks for your great comments. I sent this to who a friend who posted with my name attached on Facebook July 10 last year. It’s since been posted all over the place with the odd word change – sometimes more than just the odd change – and mostly anonymously. Recently it’s being attributed to English poet Pam Ayres 🙂 🙂 … ah well! Anyway, thanks again. If bothered you can Google words – missus paperback John Summers – to confirm it was me !
