Rubbish at Adultery Must I give up another night To hear you whinge and whine About how terribly grim you feel And what a dreadful swine You are? You say you’ll never leave Your wife and children. Fine; When have I ever asked you to? I’d settle for a kiss. Couldn’t you, for an hour or so, Just leave them out of this? A rare ten minutes off from guilty Diatribes – what bliss. Yes, I’m aware you’re sensitive: A tortured, wounded soul. I’m after passion, thrills and fun. You say fun takes its toll, So what are we doing here? I fear We’ve lost our common goal. You’re rubbish at adultery. I think you ought to quit. Trouble is, though, fidelity? You’re just as crap at it. Choose one and do it properly, You stupid, stupid git. Task Three Read the full poem.
