sometimes a shut mouth is the best mouth

Judy wants to meet up

still not sure why her man left

leaving her with 2 boys to raise

& after a glass of red 2

she confides towards their end

he never came near her

& I want to say

there’s the clue love

take the hint

but I don’t

she asks if I’ve seen him?

& I lie flat out to her face

that I’ve not heard hide nor hair

not my place to tell truth here

I met him & his new partner

a few weeks ago

a very nice fella he’s in love with

the both of them happy together

& he never once mentioned Judy

so neither did I

guessing that part of his life

was over & sometimes

a shut mouth is the best mouth

not my place to tell stories out of school
