Yet again she proclaims herself anti-marriage! But don't forget...... I don't write the originals!
UNDER THE INFLUENCE!
When you've been married forty years
Romance is rather rare.
And there are times when you may feel
Your partner doesn't care.
Well, take the case of Benjamin
And his long-time lady, Ann.
There'd been such extravagant words of love
When their affair began.
But now he merely said 'Old girl'!
Which left her feeling shattered.
He very rarely held her hand;
He very rarely flattered.
But one day he was in great pain;
His appendix so they said!
He ended up in hospital,
Coming round in a hospital bed.
He lay there looking woozy,
Which was not a great surprise,
He groaned a bit and moaned a bit,
And finally opened his eyes.
It was then the miracle occurred!
He spoke out loud and clear.
He gazed at Ann and then he said
'You're beautiful, my dear!'
He slept then while Ann sat and gazed
At this new-found paramour.
He'd looked at her and said the words
That she'd been longing for.
Now later on, he stirred a bit,
And once more had his say,
Squinting at Ann he said the words
'You look quite good today.'
"Quite good!' cried Ann, 'Where did 'beautiful' go?'
Ben gave a nervous cough
.'Can't help it, old girl' he stuttered
'The anaesthetic's wearing off!'
