I’m embroiled in an imbroglio –
Meshed in fuss and stress;
I didn’t see it coming up,
Careless I confess.
I told her not to speak her mind,
Not to tell the tale;
But NO, she had to spill the beans
Our secret to unveil.
Such honesty’s not always wise,
It often leads to pain.
I doubt she’ll ever think of me
For, admitting to our liaison then,
Over a glass of wine,
Brought calumny upon her head,
And a beating up on mine.
