Mrs Drogue late of The Limes
has had an accident today
she would have pressed the buzzer
but felt a little confused,
she thought her son who passed away last year
would be coming to visit today.
It's when the body makes its own decisions
one carer told me
that's when these things happen.
We go back a long way
Mrs Drogue and me
she was never easy, an awkward neighbour
for so many years.
When Arthur died she lost the plot
now I stop by once a week.
She doesn't know quite who I am
but I ask her if Arthur has dropped in yet
and that passes the time away.
It's amazing to see how she comes to life
she loved him to death,
i'm really just a stranger now
but I look forward to the walk anyway.
