A thought provoking poem. Cleverly written.
Could be lashing out at each other out of frustrated yearnings... blaming each other for their frustrations and unfulfillment. Written bravely...or maybe stoically... with deceptive lightheartedness. An amazing and highly pregnant brief statement! ! Thanks for posting.
Hehehe.... I makes me sneer............. Nice one by Roger MacGough.....
Cleverly designed with a hint of humour.
Apparently funny, but certainly there lies sad episodes beneath the lines.
