I did something decadent last week
and dumped that rubbish shower gel.
Pleased myself, for a change
now there’s only me.
An eye for a bargain is what you had
or so you said. Some people might agree
but to me, you were just downright mean.
This one’s much more up my street.
The lather’s to die for – bubbles galore!
Cost an arm and a leg but sure as hell
I’m worth it; ‘Dolce Vita’ by Christian Dior –
‘A Beautiful Life’. Now there’s a joke!
Thumb through a pile of magazines,
put Captain Corelli’s Mandolin on repeat –
listen to the rain beat on the windows.
This lady sure knows how to live!
Go to bed to actually sleep. Mind you,
a girl can have too many early nights …
So, pour myself a large gin on the rocks –
hit the sack, kill the light.
Revel in the fact the blanket’s turned up high
and for once be warm as toast. Boy, oh boy
as I recall, that really got your goat; like burning
money you'd always moan.
Did something decadent last week – dumped
that shower gel and my ‘best’ friend, along with
the man who took the ‘two for one’ philosophy
to its ultimate extreme.
