Breach of Promise

All you left me was alone

You came into my drab life unannounced.  I didn’t seek you.  I had become resigned to being out in the cold.  Suddenly you were there and life was bright, mellow sunshine.

You seduced me by degrees.

I thought that you were here to stay; that you would never leave me. 

This morning I awoke and you were gone.  You left like a thief in the night, stealing my hope.

I trudged to work through a world of gray; sleeting, chilling snow turning to slush as it hit the puddles that are all you left behind.

Spring, you done me wrong.

My slushy puddle of pain...

    Have you been listening to country music?


  3. So Buddy Rich -yes, the legendary jazz drummer – is being rushed into hospital.
    The nurse says: ‘Are you allergic to anything?’
    Rich mutters: ‘Yes – country music. . . ‘

    Harsh but a good gag nevertheless.

    I can feel your pain.


  5. “Papa was a rollin’ stone, wherever he laid his hat was his home, and when he died, all he left us was alone.” ~The Temptations. Motown, not country. =)
