Not a Scaffold

They whisper in hush tones
stealing glances askance
furtive and guilty
with their pant and skirt down.

He had walked in
when they were at it
he had built a lot of trust
that snapped phut.

But the snap was not fresh
this was a pretty old crash
for now he grinned ear to ear
and saluted the lucky guy.

And said thanks for sweeping
and the sleeping that I could not afford
here is my new bed 
that's is really one,

and not a scaffold.
