Finish the story begins with: “Are you laughing at me?“
“Are you laughing at me?”
She shook her head in dismay
When would he take her seriously?
Dismissing her thoughts so airily
He might be the big shot at his office
But he didn’t have to be so callous.
His clothes were laundered and pressed
She massaged his shoulders when he was stressed
His dinner was always hot and nourishing
She’d spend all day tidying and cleaning
Now she wanted to go out to work
She starts work as a part-time clerk
She sees the kids off to school
Takes her turn at the car pool
She returns home by four
Quickly mops the floor
She does the laundry
Longing to be free
It won’t take long
Before she is gone
The last laugh will be on her
As she walks out of the door.
