I finished eating, then turned and said:
(After the last rights were read.)
“Thank you dear Lord for this feast
of burnt potatoes and roast beast,
ice cold gravy that’s much too thick,
and dinner rolls that taste like bricks.
She cleared away the food so dismal,
I went to get the Pepto Bismol.
I raised my glass in a toast,
(I enjoyed the Pepto Bismol most.)
“How was dinner?” Asked my wife,
I’ve never lied in my whole life,
“The best dinner I’ve had today.”
Then I turned and walked away.

All that is necessary for the forces of evil to win the world is for enough good men to do nothing...Edmund Burke

Reminds me of when I was newly wedded -- wife could only cook hamburger helper. Only once did I ever complain "What, this stuff again."

We still managed to have children after that.

Great Piece of classic humor, this is timeless. And you never did actually lie, did you.

Some thoughts
This was excellent. It was well written and rhymed perfectly. It reminded me of a girl I knew that didn't know how to cook and wanted to be my roommate. I told her no way.
