Gentlemen Only Ladies Forbidden*

‘Golf Widow Seeks Entertainment’
…A quietly uncomfortable sentiment,
The culmination of years, decades,
Of regular weekend masquerade…
The ‘Do you mind?’ a ritual game
In which the outcome remains the same,
Golf Wife pondering the silent taboo
‘What if I said Yes, Dear?…Then, what would you do??’
And as the summer days roll out,
So grows the annual silent doubt
That standing in line to a sporting preference
Is something of a personal offence,
The weekly ritual so embedded
He doesn’t even give her credit
For all the things she might consider
Knowing that he won’t be with her…
