Who’s the Man Now?

There was another name
on the mailbox after we moved in.
I didn’t take it down for a while.

I needed to get used to the idea
of the house being mine.
You see, there was a man of the house

before I was the man of the house.
But now I’m the man taking
the name on the mailbox down.

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.
