Come! Impropriety reigns
Spouse and children have left
oh fleeting moment of depravity (!)
shall we imbibe spirits? Cuddle on the couch?
You invade my thoughts all day
incompartible, inutterable desire!
unattached companions are baffled
their tastes run contrary
Ah! You play hard-to-get!
Your presence is fleeting
My tall, dark and silent one
we bid adieu until the next occasion
hauls the rest of the motley crew away
and quietude – sweet serenity – alights
