It Was Her Own Fault
Overheard conversation but I must admit I exaggerated it…….a lot haha
It Was Her Own Fault
We were sitting in a restaurant, sharing glass of wine
Music soft, menu good, first date progressing fine
It was a new liaison, so secrecy our plan
Didn’t want the world to know, as it had just began
Had chosen other side of town, so we were unafraid
If other folk did glance at us, at the tender gestures made
Suddenly mid-sentence, his face turned pearly white
Then in one almighty swoop, he tumbled from my sight
Presumed he’d had a heart attack, then understood for sure
The reason he had fallen and lay prone upon the floor
At the entrance was a woman, she thought she was my friend
Involvement with her husband, I never did intend
But she didn’t understand him, this I do believe
It’s her fault it’s happened, I had no plans to deceive
Our table placed in corner, close up against the wall
Once you were beneath it, no way out, not even crawl
Then alas she spied me, so she gave a little shout
I was truly stuck as well, of that there was no doubt
She greeted me with open arms, then she took his chair
I filled up the empty glasses, we raised them in the air
We toasted to fidelity, to the future, to our friends,
Thumbs down to anybody who is false or who pretends
All this time her hubby suffered agonising cramp
His legs were stiff, his neck was sore and his pants a trifle damp
So I didn’t order dinner, as I could not eat a bite
Told her I was tired, so must reach home while it’s light
I said I wasn’t hungry, at lunch I’d had my fill
But on leaving as I am polite… I went and paid the bill
