A Rope

I am not getting you a necklace today.

Instead I'll give you a rope.
To hang yourself with
An unescapable bond
Binding hearts together.

I am not giving you perfume today.

Here is a bottle of cyanide
To keep at your bedside.
Perfumed and strong
It won't take long.

I'm not giving you champagne today.
Cheap whisky and paracetamol
Will numb the pain
and achieve our aim.

I'm not giving you 'free love' today.
Everything comes with a Price!
