She said she was unhappy
With our marriage on the rocks.
She said that life was crappy,
She had had too many knocks.
But she could have washed the dishes
Before taking up the knife.
Yes she should have washed the dishes
Before she took her life.
This poem won first prize in the SAWC poetry competition in 2013.
