A Cupboard Love

A CUPBOARD LOVE She checks the fridge, it is full of food But of her boyfriend, there is no news Save her belly is full, she doesn't care Worry comes, once the cupboard bare Vibes picked up, he's on the way back There is lots of money in his backpack Cat scratches the wall; abruptly stops There's no more eating left over slops Rubs a leaner body up against his leg Heating off his mistress hugs the bed Sad, why does he have to be so mean Leaving his woman to become so lean Dosh on the meter, he warms the pad Feeding her food, makes her feel glad Runs a bath so she can get in to relax Just to let her know he's got her back Changes the sheets, and duvet covers Reminds her; just why they are lovers She dries off, then crawls into the bed Was not long, she was in the land of Z He slips out and as heads to the store Now the cupboards are full once more He is not a player; he works real hard He wants the house, as that backyard Wed her, to have kids in her own time This mountain together they will climb As fridge and cupboard full she knows It won't be long, before again he goes She's frugal to her it's all about timing And to her empty belly that is whining Coz', she wants that dream house too And so, says the cat, with a little mew Indiana Shaw . . . "Awww" . . .
