The Old Dog Reminisces

First love, last love, walk in the park, kiss in the dark.

When the trees were cut the forest could be seen
Pathways had been introduced so we could walk between
The boughs that nature tied in twisted revelry
And all this came to give us hope some hope for you and me

We had lived in shadows of former selves and homes
Where parents had created us to be their self made clones
Fathers full of yearning mothers blessed by time
And you and I invisible this was our only crime

You came in chains I brought the dark desire
And with my solitude I made you out the liar
Sticks and stones will break me but words will do much worse
You offered me your loving but it proved to be a curse

And I carried all my guilt and hurt into the marriage bed
Which slowly twisted round our skin an animal we fed
For you found yourself a lover who had thighs to pin you down
In a pre orgasmic servitude that made the strangest sounds

So if you dance on Fridays with a touch of gin inside
You will still be blessed and holy with a penchant for a lie
And I will try to tiptoe through the barriers you made
To wash away the cobwebs that you wound around your slave

Its always such a pity that people have to change
Rearrange their circumstance and wash away their gains
Throw aside their moral ground replacing it with dust
Losing their credibility their hard earnt love and trust

I will walk into the shadows of former selves and homes
And you will throw this old dog the brittlest of bones
For its better to be playing than sitting on the side
Even if your end result is that you have no place to hide
