EVENT

For Sunday Scribblings - Event


and they all lived…

after ‘i love you’
things started to happen

things that made us happy
all our dreams came true
*
church wedding; her in white
me, in a three piece suit

continental holidays
a house we could call home

children to worship
till death do us part

all the modern gadgets
plasma screen TV

mobile telephones
his and hers comforts

rings on every finger
diamonds in her ears

all that she could wish for
no expense was spared
*
whatever lola wanted
lola got… and then some
*
‘doesn’t get much better’
couldn’t get much worse
*
too much was not enough
honeymoon was over
*
and by coincidence
redundancy happened
*
left with next to nothing
everything to pay for

*
*
*
apparently i couldn’t
give her what she wanted
