It was good
while it lasted
it lasted as long

as it could
what with him
being as he was

me being
as I am
his wife being

as she was
so I am to go
go to Paris maybe

leave him to her
her ways
him to his

lost cause
the clock
is ticking tocking

time away
we had a good time
had laughter

love making
sex with a big S
his wife

didn't know
or we believe she didn't
so I will take

a last look around
the place
last gaze out the window

last look at the bed
and think
of his last words

the last look from him
and I will leave him
the small gifts he gave

he will say
o Rosie why go?
I will say

in the letter
it is for the good
and the better.
