You feel guilty of not
getting on with the young woman
She does not seem to make an effort
to hang-on to you
but aims to catch a millionaire.
In the growth of distrust
ill feelings are sewn by the elderly
If she trusts the boxes of Valium
prescribed by her friendly doctor
she’ll be in trouble with her health.
Her life ‘s a sequel of operations
blamed in late life on her spouse
who had health problems on his own
but the positions have suddenly changed.
Women’s Lib has also taken hold of the
and jealousy for other women
has set foot in her mind.
Mrs IR offers accommodation
to the battered artist during the week
but her own marriage is topsy-turvy.
God bless the artist –
understood only by other artists.
In the background those who have
will always play on vassals
and trade potential intimacies
for black money.
