Tackle Box

He said that fishing with his boss
Would be helpful for his career.
He told his wife to pack his bags,
His new suitcase and fishing gear.

He said, “Be sure and don’t forget
My silk pajamas and dress socks.”
As he left she ran to catch him,
“You’re forgetting your tackle box!”

When he got home on Sunday night,
She asked if fishing had been fun.
He said the fishing had been great
He said that he’d caught twenty-one.

Then he told her how dumb she was
And how she couldn’t get things right.
Because of her forgetfulness,
He had spent a miserable night.

“You forgot my silk pajamas,
All you packed were my briefs and socks.”
“I packed your pajamas alright,
I put them in your tackle box!”
