Cocktails

       Andrew R. Crow
Monet and his wife
Were over for drinks
And while he pontificated
About acrylics and style
To the go-boy
Who stumbled in
From next door
She asked me
What was the worst thing
In life?
Saying something
No-one wants to hear
I replied
Feet tapping a polka
On the floorboards
