55-Tough guy

You won't sleep for 15days,
If he punch you on your face,
You won't stand straight up again,
If he punch and thunder your backbone.
You will sleep in eternal peace,
If he punch beneath your chest.

Yet he cried one full night,
The day his wife left,
Taking with her the two small kids...

  15. Holy cow. This floored me.

    I can't imagine not sleeping for 15 days tho, that's gotta be bad.

    And that's one HELL of an edema he's got! (I just learned the word edema last night, and am amazed I got to use it so soon!
