"Instead of Slapping Her"

by DaddyO


I suppose one could try smelling salts.


But then ya never know,


What if instead
I accidentally were to
Pull out my chloroform?


"Lonely and pathetic"
Are not adjectives I would use
In a million lifetimes to describe
A spirit of such glorious grace and grandeur.


But then I must remember:
I've never seen her

When I wasn't around.
