Sexual Behaviour In Suburbia
You are not there to fantasise,
that's not lust that's in your eyes.
It's Sturday night again, so no books but 'passion' -
prepare yourself for your weekly ration.

you know it won't work, the act will be missed.
Accusing eyes to avoid when you wake.

open your eyes, you were self selected.
Horror at this dishounest coupling,
no feeling, love, ...
