Just because your wife
Gets in bed with no underwear
Doesn’t mean Jack shit.

She’s probably just “airing out”
Her pretty muffin,
Taking a break from those tight black squeezers.

Another hypothesis,
Albeit difficult to test,
Is that she simply forgot to put on her PJs.

A tough hypothesis to test indeed
But a reasonable speculation,
Knowing a wife and mom’s weltanschauung for slumber.

But there she is...
Naked to the satin sheets and April wind
In a contemplative callipygian slumber.

She begins to snore-
Your only solution,
Go in the living room and write about Tiger Beetles…

Not much of a solution for you Guys,
At least as far as parts of your covered bodies
Are concerned.

I've known a few women but so far none who ever "forgot" to put something on or take something off. Interesting idea though.
