A Toast to the Ladies

Dedicated to all the wives and girlfriends who support their partners.  Originally written as a toast for a 12 Regiment Royal Artillery WOs' and Sgts' Mess Dinner.

Published in the Anthology "Letters from the Soul"


They grace our tables

with their elegance and their beauty,

Support us in our careers

as though it was their duty,

They listen to our problems

day after day,

The same old problems,

They´ve been listening to since May,

 

Chefs, accountants, nannies and councillors

are just a few of their talents.

And when things are hectic

they mostly keep their balance.

And what do they get

when they've worked a long hard day.

I'll tell you something gents

they don't ask for any pay.
 

So how can we show gratitude for what is clearly so demanding.

Its quite simple

Gentlemen, please be upstanding,

The Ladies
