always been like this right down the line

mebbe the laziest man I know

you don’t call he says when we meet

which deserves a strong answer

I called you yesterday half ten in the a m

& you were in bed you said

would call back later & never did

so I had to call again fix today

called last week after three in the afternoon

I’ll go get him she said

he’s asleep in the chair having a snooze

anyways when did you last call me?

ok ok its these pills I take I’m tired all the time

& right then I didn’t have the heart start of a fight

today to tell him straight to his face

he’d always been like this right down the line
