(He did, too)

*****

 

She’s happy if I go
He’s happy if I stay
She’d be thrilled to see me
In fits dying away

She provides, as always,
Th’appropriate power play
Abuse, or lies, or friendliness
Whatever works today

My bet is, as his habit is,
He’ll let her have her way —
See such quality enslaved
Sadder than I can say
