A Haven Marred by C.J. Dennis

"Talking pictures" are about to be screened in Melbourne.

Jones is a man exceeding meek
   And henpecked, so his neighbors say,
Who, one glad evening every week,
   Sought sanctuary in his queer way.

At his suburban picture show
   He'd sit and gloat, in mood serene,
Quite recompensed for all his woe
   To see dumb women on the screen.

But now the picture house he shuns;
   His week becomes one weary drag;
For, 'mid the crash of "he-men's" guns,
   Even the female shadows nag!
