You are ever faithful, and I to you.
I find you simple, plain, and unable to satisfy me.
I will find another. Someone more exiting and new.
I will bring him to our marriage bed.
Does this not please you, my one true groom?
Your sweat and tears I admire. You’ve labored hard for me.
I will sit back and watch you work yourself to the bone.
I will pretend your tears and blood are not dripping before my eyes.
I will rest and enjoy the fruit of your labors.
Does this not please you, my sacrificial groom?
Your words are sweet and your ways are just.
I will do that which is pleasing to me, ignoring all inconvenience.
I will seek the counsel of your enemy and heed their advice.
I will twist your words and use them as I choose.
Does this not please you, my wise groom?
I honor and respect you and with my words I praise your name.
When the mockers come, I will remain silent.
I might even join them as they slander you behind your back.
I will disgrace your name and bring you shame.
Does this not please you, my honorable groom?
I adore everything about you and my heart is yours.
I can’t be bothered to get to know you.
I will not ponder the depths of your soul and seek after you.
I will say that I love you, but I am far from you.
Does this not please you, my devoted groom?
