The Curb


But when your eyes are straining
as if to burst like tiny balloons
and every muscle taught and flexed
and your ears are bleeding because
you don’t really know why, perhaps
it’s time to step away from that
sorry excuse of a love you’ve got

And some lessons come to late but
thank goodness this one came at all
and perhaps you’ve learned because
otherwise you never will at all and
I’ll write up your will and testament
but it won’t mean much by and by
what with that succubus nibbling and
all but son I think you’ve got it
this time and hopefully it sticks
so that succubus, she doesn’t,
and we can all move on a baby step
at a time.
