Iron man

I (1)

I was not meant for a life like this

What about my dream of wedded bliss?

The daily chores

They are such bores

I spend my day as cleaner and cook

And no one seems to give a fuck

Or offer to even lend a hand

They just don’t understand

The way I feel

My pain is real

This housework never seems to end

I should be having lunch with friends

Living a luxury lifestyle

Not ploughing through the laundry pile

I need a hero who will save me

From this life of drudgery

I don’t need ย a Superman

Like Spiderman

Will Batman or Thor

Hoover the stairs ย and mop the floor?

The only Hero good enough

Doesn’t have to be tough

I don’t need someone who can fly

Just someone to clean my pigsty

There is only one hero for me

And the only one that it can be

It is no other than

The one and only …IRONMAN

    I’m seriously worried about myself when all I can think looking at that pic is that he’s going to burn that shirt if he holds the iron down any longer. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
