What Was That You Said?

My wife complained because I never hear
A word she says to me from day to day,
And then she shed a single doleful tear
Then turned her back on me and stormed away.
(In truth I never heard a word of this,
And never knew that she was so upset,
Until my kids declared I'd been remiss,
And then berated me with angry threats.)
I do not understand why they're so mad;
I've never listened since the day we wed,
My deafness isn't just a ploy or fad;
I do exactly what the Good Book says.
For why was Adam punished all his life?
"Because," God said, "you listened to your wife."
