It’s that time again
It comes but once a year
A single day
That fills a man with fear
A fear that is not apparent
Well, not at first anyway
Give it time though, just wait
It only happens late in the day
………………… Oh dear. Oh my.
I can’t believe I’ve done it again
How did I forget it?
This day can only end in pain
It’s ok, she’s not home yet
There’s still time to save myself
Make a dash to the shops, pick something up
If I don’t, it’s going to be bad for my health
Card and flowers will be enough
I hope there’s still some left to take
Turn the corner, look to the left
All I see is emptiness, for f***’s sake
Damn, she’ll be back soon
Better grab something quick and run
Pick a card, take some choc
Pay at the counter, right I’m done
Arrive home, act normal
Back just in the nick of time
Check the card to make sure
………….’Happy Mothers Day’…………
At least I have the chocolates
Hang on, what does that say?!
Who the hell stacked these shelves
Why would I want a box of chicken satay?!
I think this will not be forgiven
I never did like February much anyway
I hope I’m not the only one to suffer…
Happy Valentine’s Day.
