Why women talk a lot.
My husband complains that I talk a lot
Actually, that I talk all the time,
I talk over TV programmes and films
I can’t help it, I like my voice, it is mine
Now I feel for all this talking
That there is indeed a reason,
And it is not to do with moonlight,
Tides, stars or season.
The female species is a clever thing,
And we use our mouths to vocalise our intellect
Now for my humble husband who keeps his hidden,
This is something he will never get.
You see, when I point out the obvious
I am checking that my husband has seen it too
He grumbles and grunts that he has
When I know he really hasn’t a clue.
Now the good old telephone is the worst offender,
Five minute phone calls, turn to hours
And with exciting mobile technology,
I can have chats on toilets, in baths or even showers
But alas, for all this talking, I must admit
There is just one person to blame,
And that is my dearest mother,
For she is exactly the same.
