Sunday Muse -- Good Marriage

The Mainstay 

Body guards and chauffeurs 

Became her way of life 

Decided that way back 

Back when she got The Cat 

An Arabian prince 

Owned One Sixty acres 

Oil wells, refineries 

The Cat, he and she merged 

When The Cat married her 

She was Wife Number Three 

(Not the dread Number Four) 

Family Mainstay became 

Revered by all the clan 

And treated royally

I guess we're all left to wonder about "dreaded number four" !

I hope she enjoyed the limo and heightened lifestyle before Number Four appeared on the scene. An entertaining read, Jim.

"The Cat, he and she merged" - provocative line. "The Cat" a nice enigma, or was that a reference to something?

Big story told effectively in a poem Jim.

Love the tinge of humour Dr Jim! If one is allowed 4 then it follows the adage, 'what can go wrong will go wrong'

What's wrong with the fourth wife? And what's up with the cat? Intriguing poem.

I wonder why she made the decision... was it love alone?

Have a great week!

I like the terminology you use in this. The Cat is a cool name for Mr. Big.

I like her attitude! She decided that's the life she wanted, and she went out and got it. Sure, she could have worked to make it herself, but it was probably work keeping him and not becoming his third ex. I don't think I'd care for the need for a body guard.

Why stop short of Number Four? Interesting interpretation of the prompt.

Wife number four, maximum by Arabian law even for princes, often times is divorced annually or so in favor of a new young wife.
