My wife and I own 1½ acres with a house and a big red barn where we are currently raising two children, two dogs, five cats, nine goats, ten chickens, and eleven sheep. I pay the bills by working in the big city as a software engineer, but that's just what I do, not who I am.
The best I can do is to crawl off and pour out all my wages on some cheap anodyne
The best I can do is to laugh, and tell her that I'm a complete waste of time
And make sure that she don't come down here with me
