Love poem

I suppose you’re right and breaking up

would be quite a good thing,

but staying together

would be an equally good thing,

so whatever we decide to do

it will be all right. On balance,

I lean towards doing nothing,

but whatever happens we’ll go on

seeing each other, won’t we?


I suppose it wouldn’t be so bad,

seeing other people for a change,

we might even find someone

we could bear to be with

for more than half an hour,

although I doubt it somehow.

Experience suggests we go on

feeling the same about everything

no matter what happens. I do anyway.
