My wife and I love a darned good book,

All we have to do is take one look,

And we’re lost in worlds of intrigue, romance,

Of rags to riches, of circumstance,

Of melodrama or history,

Or detective tales of mystery.

We have books between us to sink a ship,

So my wife decided to get a grip,

And buy some beautiful library stairs,

To preclude the need to climb on chairs,

To reach that tome on the very top shelf,

She needs some love (mental note to self).
