The unwanted guest
We are having guests tomorrow
I hate it upsetting my day
Eight people and one of them is a woman
I once loved and wrote poetry about.
It is embarrassing I used her as a muse
But I’m not interested in her personally.
The only good thing is we are going to a posh
Restaurant and I don’t have to pay.
If they order something dear and it is not
Good for my diabetes I will have to say so
And have an omelette with tomatoes.
The husband of the one I used to like works
In the oil business in a poor African country
So wine is out I get loose lips when drinking.
It will be an ordeal I have to suffer not
To upset anyone and leave my political views at home.
