THE LAST THING THAT HE SAID TO HER

The last thing that he said to her

as he was walking out the door,

Was “You go your way, and

I’ll go mine

I don’t love you anymore”.

 

He slammed the door for emphasis,

And hurried down the street,

There was a certain someone

He was planning to go meet;

 

He thought his wife was stupid,

that she didn’t know the score,

in fact, he was quite sure of it

he’d conned women like her

many times before;

 

By the time she learned

their bank account

didn’t have a dime,

he expected he’d be far away,

having one fine time;

 

Deep in thought, she sat a while,

then smiled into her coffee cup;

She gathered up the dishes,

As she rinsed and

stacked them up

Carefully, she filled the dishwasher

and turned the dial to “very hot”

It wouldn’t do to make mistakes;

Careless, she was not.
