Secret Date - Poem by Lynn Cowman

I said
Grass marks on your arse
And straw stuck in your hair
My god where have you been
Because I don’t think I was there

You’ve got mud all up your trouser leg
And string behind your ear
Who have you been having fun with?
Because I’m sure I wasn’t near

You’ve got lipstick on your collar
And eye shadow on your chin
If you don't speak the truth
You'll get this rolling pin

So tell me was it good for you
This secret date you had
I hope that she enjoyed it too
As for me, enough I’ve had

So go and pack your bags dear
Go off and be with her
Just remember that it wasn’t me
But you who didn’t care.

His Answer Was

The grass marks off the football
The straw is off my hat
I've been down to the park
The answers as simple as that

The mud is off the garden
Which across I had to walk
The string I had to use
To mend a flowers broken stalk

The lipsticks is off Billy
You know the one that’s gay
He came up and he kissed me
When I scored a goal today

There has not been a secret date
What I’m saying is so true
There could be no one else for me
There’s no one else but you

So please will you believe me
You know I don’t tell lies
Can’t you see I’m crying?
See the tears that’s in my eyes
~ ~ ~ ~
Ok I shouldn't have doubted you
I'll put your photo back in the locket
Hold on, just wait a minute
Whose are those knickers in your pocket?
