My lover is traditional,
She tradionally wants these.
Cooking, cleaning, and care-taking,
She expects of me the three c’s.
I too am quite traditional,
I traditionally do these.
Burn food, miss spots, and forget things,
If she’d grade me I’d get all d’s.
I’m thankful above all for this,
Her trait that’s untraditional.
Despite my flubs and epic fails,
Her love is unconditional.
