An Expensive Mistake - Poem by Dan Brown

Er… Hello darling,
This isn’t how it looks.
I swear I just got lucky,
he usually double-books!

You weren’t meant to find us,
that is to say.. er.. you’re hallucinating.
Er..1..2..3.. you’re under and
er.. you didn’t see us mating.

Darling, can’t I say I’m sorry?
Before you throw that plate?
Whoa, hey, steady on there!
Ok, so its too late!

Please don’t leave me, pumpkin.
I swear it won’t happen again.
You’ll never, ever catch me
doing it with other men.

Please don’t take the kids dear,
I love them both to bits.
I’ll do all I can to prove I’m straight,
I’ll even kiss your tits! ? !

Have a heart and leave me something, bunnykins?
Can I keep my crate of booze?
At least give me an icepack, darling,
to ease this aching bruise.

Please don’t go like this love,
don’t leave our relationship so sour.
Actually, could we discuss this another time, my sweet?
Just he’s charging me by the hour
