Another Unconditional Love Ode - Poem by Ruth Walters

Your train rolls into the station
at 7.20am each morning
and you're still tired
from the night before.

Sitting in the same compartment
each day, opposite the same
po' faced, spotty, geek
is also pretty rich

and catching the late one home
every night
after a gruelling 12 hour shift
is slaughtering

but having to deal with
your wife and explain it all
is mind blowingly,
soul destroying

so just to ease the strain,
you stop off for a large latte and huge slice
of sumptuous cherry pie
with ice cream

so you don't feel so blameless
when she tells you
she's leaving for the
umpteenth time.

Only the dog,
your four legged friend
is totally on your side
with unconditional love.
