Well, yes, I guess it’s right that there should be
someone who’s always there to dry your tears
and help you while away the after-me –
which after all could well be 20 years.
And yes, I guess it really would be better
if he is all in all a decent bloke
kind clever funny tall (a good six footer),
left wing, quite fit – of course he shouldn’t smoke.
And yes, I most reluctantly concede
that you should love him, if his role’s to be
your movie’s final reel’s male lead.
But oh my love, don’t love him more than me.
