Who Spouses Whom?

WHEN first wife meets the second wife‚
What do they say? What do they think?
When husband two meets husband three‚
Who sportingly pays for the drink?
When daughter by the third wife meets
A handsome lad by number two
Whose dad was fourth wife’s second job.
What should a puzzled lassie do?
When fifth wife meets her fourth man’s bride
It happens now in any room—
Who should speak first? And by this time
Who gives a hoot who spouses whom?
Perhaps the race is moving back
To jungle folk at jungle play;
Promiscuous and nonchalant
And more like monkeys every day.
