I DON’T REMEMBER

I don’t remember…did you like your eggs

Poached or sunny side up?

Did you like your toast buttered or plain,

Sanka or tea in your cup?

 

I don’t remember…did you prefer red wine

Or would you rather just drink white?

Or would you just as soon have a beer?

To drink with your dinner at night?

 

I don’t remember your after-shave,

or the cologne that you would wear,

I don’t remember just what it was,

That gave you the right to swear.

 

Your baleful wrath was really a sight,

to shout and curse us all….

But I don’t remember just what it was

that caused the final Great Fall.

 

But fall we did, from your good graces,

And off you went in retreat;

I don’t remember what all you said–

I only remember…..RELIEF.
