Exodus

planning one's escape is never easy

even Steve McQueen found it hard

guilt made me especially queasy

I was writing your last birthday card

 

my escape strategy was meticulous

armed guards would have missed it

such carelessness left me incredulous

normally your vigilance took the biscuit

 

I timed your every movement with care

then I waited till you left for the gym

my bags were packed but did I care?

yes, I did, to protect my life and limb

 

my escape strategy was meticulous

armed guards would have missed it

such carelessness left me incredulous

normally your vigilance took the biscuit

 

only now do I see you infiltrated my scheme from the start

that the gym manager, unlike me, had secured your heart

 

my escape strategy was meticulous

armed guards would have missed it

such carelessness left me incredulous

normally your vigilance took the biscuit
