Oh what is a man to do with his life
Without clear commands and input from his wife?
One fears he would wander and drift through each day
without a clear goal or the good sense to say
“Pray tell my dear lady what would you like me to do
in order to make this day perfect for you?”

But lo and behold what do the wise Wives provide,
but a list for us poor men to use as a guide.
Now some men may say this list is a gift,
and failure to adhere to it may cause a rift.
But those that are wise and experienced in years,
look on this rare gift and it brings them to tears.

For you see, just as one task is done and complete
the list is amended to include two more feats!
