Divorced Fae Reality     by: Benzie, Lesley

She asked her ex husband fit wy?

Can ye never tell the kids
straight
fan ye can tak them for a weekend
or a week durin the holidays,
instead ye aye say,

ah'll hae ti look at my diary
and phone ye back.

The kids they wait
and wait
then call him again.



He answered in his defence,

if you'd never left
the kids would see me plenty.

Ach stop pedalin the same ald excuse
efter 8 years am nae buyin.


But you ken ah canna
tak responsibility for kids.


Fit,
is it genetic,
or worse still contagious?
Well we better hope a dinna catch it
cause that on top a bein a mad bitch
could be serious.
