Friday Flash 55 - The Biggest Loser - January 28, 2011

Every day was agony,
She treated him the same,
Calling him a loser,
She was a hateful dame.

Twenty years of marriage,
He'd been a faithful spouse,
He gave her every paycheck,
And bought her this nice house!

He left behind some money, heading for the door,
With his lottery winnings, he'd return no more!

I am participating in Mr KnowItAll's Friday Flash 55!
Check it out and join in the fun.


  1. Another great poem! Are you the Author for this one too? You amazing!!!

    Have a great weekend!


  2. I hope she didn't snag too big a portion in the divorce settlement.

  3. my FIL has played it religeously since its reason i am always nice to him...smiles.

  4. Wow, I've never had a husband who gave me every pay cheque, or even one pay cheque. I think I'd be really nice to a husband who did that. So he deserved to escape, good for him.

  18. Lisa -
    Yes, this is also my poem. I've been writing thm for about sixty years...just published my first poetry book last year!

    Alice Audrey -
    The way I figured it, he was nice enough to leave her money, he probably disappeared into parts unknown!

    Brian Miller -
    Let's hope our father-in-law wins. I am not too lucky in that regard. I often buy a ticket that doesn't even have a single number drawn! How's that for luck??

    Kay L.Davies -
    I figured it was pretty far fetched to write about a husband giving his pay checks to his wife. I figured that was pretty rare.

    Cildemar -
    Such fiction that poem was but I enjoyed writing it!

    Belinda -
    Isn't it nice how we can create happy endings for people with out pen? Too bad it rarely happens that way in real life!

    CARMEN -
    Hope you had a lovely weekend...glad you like my short poem.

    Wouldn't it be wonderful to win the lottery? I play, occasionally, but, often I don't even have one number!

    TALON -
    If only these things happened!

    hedgewitch -
    Divine justice...or, maybe, not divine, but justice nonetheless!

    magiceye -
    A fairytale lottery tale!

    G-Man -
    Well, I just want to win a wee sum ( maybe even a $100,000 ) in the lottery and there's no man in my life so I wouldn't have to share it...except a little bit with the three sons.

    Sharkbytes -
    I am never very lucky so I don't think I'll ever havea winning lottery ticket!

    budh.aaah -
    A supermarket, less than two miles from me, has has two big lottery winners. I've never purchased a ticket there, though. Maybe I should.

    paige -
    Everyone's dream - to have that winning ticket.

    Akelamalu -
    In my little scenario, she certainly got what she deserved!

    Self Sagacity -
    Clearly, this guy was married to a witch!! I've had some friends whose wives were just like that.

    Always Write -
    It's fun when we can decide the outcome of villains!

    Raven -
    Unfortunately, reality isn't like fiction!

    Felicitas -
    Yes, but the poor guy lived with twenty years of
    misery. I'm not sure even that payoff was worth it!
