Poetry Tuesday: The Angry Bride

16th century Korean anonymous

Six crock bowls the bride smashed
In a fit of temper on her wedding night.
Are you going to replace them? mother-in-law asked.
The bride replied: Your son has smashed beyond repair
The vessel I brought from home.
Weighted one against the other,
The balance would seem quite fair.

;o)
