Sorry, dear, but you got fat
I could not put up with that

Your eyes got blear and hair got grey
They were as clear and bright as day

Once you tripped the light fantastic
Now your gait is slightly spastic

Once you looked like Christie Brinkley
Now you're merely old and wrinkly

Once you were spicy, fresh and hot
As appetizers, now you're not

Which brings me to my point perforce
I must have a no-fault divorce

It's not your fault, don't you feel better?
We'll be going by the new law's letter

Note: In June 2010 the New York State Legislature was featured in the news for finally considering the no-fault divorce law California passed in the 80's (the other forty-nine states had enacted it.) This piece appeared as a comment in the NYTIMES.COM weblog, Room For Debate, on June 18, 2010.
