so there I was,
galloping in in in into...
something starting with an incomprehensible letter!
the mysterious 27th letter of the alphabet?
the one nobody remembers?
or is the mare broody after a proper stallion
worthy of racing her to the finish line and losing?
I don't know
because it's been such a long time -
this chaste status
chasing the status of "married with children"
well, at least one child, you'd think!
I do love her, I do, with all my hearts and all my souls,
but this body just isn't up to her nightmarish demands for attention
of the carnal kind
the carnival of positions kind
the house of horrors kind
the twist into a pretzel kind
the tell me what to do now kind
the you're not good enough kind
the it's not you it's me kind
the marriage is a sentence not a word kind!
my alarm clock? not yours?
it's ringing again, tolling like that doorbell you broke
the ring you bent out of shape
the diamond you swallowed
the vows you ignored with my previous best friend
and yes, I do mind!
now stay still under this pillow
and sleep through this wake up call,
after all, you've got it coming,
