Frustrated Harry

There was a man named frustrated Husband Harry

Getting burnt food from his wife became a mystery

 With honey-coated words, he extracted the reasons,

 Few SM groups were her new obsessions

So to avoid the arguments, became a home-chef he, poor Mr. Harry

Line 3: 5-7 syllables. Line 4: 5-7 syllables.Line 5: 7-10 syllables

Note: Though in my poem, I haven’t followed the syllables count.
