Karina


Karina she says she has had it with men
She has raised five children from her marriages to Tony and Glen
Both were heavy drinkers and both her did beat
She reckons that decent men are hard to meet
Now in her mid fifties with grey in her hair
It has been five years since her last affair
And he left her sorry and for herself feeling sad
When he stole from her bank account all the money she had
Two failed marriages though she was a good wife
And a crook was the last man she had in her life
Each time she fell in love a big price she did pay
And now that she is single as single she will stay
Till the Reaper claims the life from her whenever that will be
She has paid the big price for love's intimacy.
