The Ex-Wife

Well, I ran into the ex-wife today
Between the canned yams and the peas
She told she had moved on from me
With some chum she picked up overseas

I told her it was fine and went about
To where the spaghetti sauce was at
But she stopped me and to my surprise
She said her new husband was a cat

I fell in love, she tells me as holds him
Aside from the furballs and messy litter
He rarely complains or makes a sound
And in bed, he’s a hell lot better

Okay, I said, and went about my way
SInce they were already so smitten
But the ex-wife threw me one more loop
She’s now pregnant with his kittens
