The Affair... - Poem by Stephen Gregory

Would she dare?
I wonder if I should
Attempt
To make this piece
An affair

Why not
It’s time one of these
That ain’t up a tree
Or hanging from one

How can this be?
An affair
Its just two unequal people
Not kerrs or bogarts

Just two unlikely, mismatched,
Classless folks
Diddiling in the dark
A political and incorrect

Lovers……
