I'll Marry The Nurse

The hand of friendship was offered
The hand of friendship was slapped away
The trajectory of the spurned

In a drugstore rant,
I see no future in a brief moment's temper
And I wonder how I'm going get through the next 20 or 30 years

When I'm old and sick and you leave me on my own
And in the care of others so you can enjoy your good health
I'll make do with what I have
And I'll marry the nurse

I've always wanted to exclaim
With outrage on my side
"This time you've gone too far! "
Instead I'll make new friends
Invite myself to new social situations
And I'll marry the nurse
