Please Stop The Rot by Paul Brookes

Please Stop The Rot

This image
In my head
Of me pissed
Ligged out
On our bed
Wondering where
You were after
We celebrated with shots
In town his good fortune
At winning his case
And stumbling downstairs
Through his open
Kitchen door
Into his lounge
To see him
Doing you doggy style
Against his couch
And you goading
Him on,
So I sit
In his armchair
As you’re so
Involved
You don’t notice me,
And I’m too polite.
