Ever Since They Gained Their Strength

Day by day

In the evening after work

Saturdays included,

Thursday even earlier. 

Rusty, he drives to the tarven.

At the same corner he parks his car

Coz he knows he will be there for a while.

Three drinks to start with he orders 

In time he doesn't even remember how many he's had

Oh in regret, how he wishes for the time to pass so that he can go home straight to bed coz,

Nobody in the house wants to spend time with him, ever since they gained their strength.

    So wonderfully penned, but that last line and the title are a kicker! Great work, Gal!
