A proper bottle opener,
As opposed to teeth is needed,
And a cigarette lighter
Instead of hob heat;
A quiet restaurant corner,
And a meal of made proportions,
Should be thought of
And brightly ordered,
And after an attack of the practicals
We should enact the rituals
Of asking and receiving
An answer in full.

And so it went and was meant,
And we stayed until we left,
And when we did it was with
A tidy reply and the best intentions
For a life led together,
And should the weather of selves
Swell and swirl and hurl us off course
Then we’ll turn to face the force of us;
Burning a new path
In the map of life
And forging ahead
As man and wife.
