I brought you some fresh flowers
to try and make you smile
but you made me wait for hours
and they wilted meanwhile.

I took you out to supper
and we sat out on the deck.
You ordered the lobster
and stiffed me with the check.

I asked you to the theater
and paid the way for you
then waited by the greeter
because I couldn’t pay for two.

And watched you walk out hand-in-hand
at the side of another man.
